The First Churchills: The Queen Commands

Princess Anne is forced to withdraw from court because of her loyalty to Sarah and John finds himself imprisoned in the Tower of London on false charges. The death of Queen Mary eases tensions somewhat and Princess Anne is allowed to return to court by King William along with the Churchills. But though they have been restored to favor, Sarah makes a foolish mistake when she introduces Anne to her scheming distant cousin, Abigail Hill.
