Historical novelist Margaret George lives in contemporary Madison, Wisconsin, but many of her most avid readers are convinced that she's capable of time travel. In her latest effort, this chronicler of Henry VIII and Cleopatra ventures into the lives of English "Virgin Queen" Elizabeth I (1533-1603) and her little-known archenemy, lookalike cousin Lettice Knollys (1543-1634). Narrated alternately by its two dueling protagonists, George's 700-page Elizabeth I engulfs readers in regal machinations, romantic intrigues, and rank jealousies.
