Overview

Torn between her heart’s passion and duty to her kingdom, a young queen makes a dark choice…
 
Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester was the most powerful man in England during the reign of Elizabeth I. Handsome and clever, he drew the interest of many women—but it was Elizabeth herself that loved him best of all. Their relationship could have culminated in marriage but for the existence of Amy Robsart, Robert's tragic young wife, who stood between them and refused to be swept away to satisfy a monarch’s desire for a man that was not rightfully her own. But when Amy suddenly dies, under circumstances that many deem to be mysterious at best, the Queen and her lover are placed under a dark cloud of suspicion, and Elizabeth is forced to make a choice that will define her legacy.

    Very Highly Recommended!

    Any of the Plaidy books having to do with the British Royalty is very, very highly recommended! She brings the characters to life and puts you right into the middle of all the action. You will cry, laugh, gasp and go through a whole range of emotions during her page-turners. To complete any of her books is bitter-sweet: sorry to leave the characters you have come to know and care about, yet happy for being so much more knowledgeable of the era and also (if you have not read every single one of her 90 books) delighted to know there are yet others of her books to go on to. She never fails to enchant and educate her reader. Such a pure delight!

    Wow ! Very fast paced ! Very interesting, can't put it down. The first book I read by Jean Plaidy, and now plan to buy all of them. I can definitely say I much better prefer Eleanor Butford as Jean Plaidy than Victoria Holt. Although I do like what she wrote as Victoria Holt too. But Victoria's books drag in action, while this is a  page turner.
