Overview

The latest New York Times bestseller from Margaret George-a captivating novel about history's most enthralling queen.

One of today's premier historical novelists, Margaret George dazzles here as she tackles her most complicated subject yet: the legendary Elizabeth Tudor, England's greatest monarch. This magnificent, stay-up-all-night page-turner is George's finest-a spectacular portrait of the alluring yet elusive woman who ruled over the golden age of British history and culture. But what was she really like? In this novel, her flame-haired, look-alike cousin, Lettice Knollys, thinks she knows all too well. And as Elizabeth and Lettice, two women of fierce intellect and desire, vie for power and influence, everyone in the court's orbit is drawn into the ensuing drama.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
George has fictionalized Henry VIII and Mary, Queen of Scots, with breathtakingly detailed success, so why not Elizabeth? This re-creation of the queen and her era is told from the perspective of her lookalike cousin Lettice Knollys, who's also in love with Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. Fans of historicals will love; with an eight-city tour.
