Overview

Legacy: The Acclaimed Novel of Elizabeth, England's Most Passionate Queen -- and the Three Men Who Loved Her by Susan Kay

A Spellbinding Tale of England's Most Passionate Queen-and the Three Men Whose Destinies Belonged to Her Alone.

"Fast-paced...one of the most fascinating monarchs in history."

-New York Times Book Review

"A stupendous achievement...a book that captures

Queen Elizabeth I completely."

-Mainstream Historical

Beloved for its stunning storytelling, Legacy offers an exquisite portrait of the queen who defined an era. Tracing the unlikely path from her tragic childhood to her ruthless confrontations with Mary, Queen of Scots, and capturing in all its glory her brilliant reign as Europe's most celebrated queen, Legacy peels back the layers from a mysterious monarch and satisfies the questions of history.

Winner of the Georgette Heyer Historical Novel Prize and the Betty Trask Award, Legacy gives us Elizabeth the woman: proud, passionate, and captivating in her intensity. She inspired men to love her with bewitching devotion, no matter what the cost, but the depth of her love for England required a sacrifice that would haunt her to the grave.

"Full of dramatic twists and turns, not to mention a scintillating central character and colorful supporting cast. Readers will lose themselves for hours in this richly entertaining novel."

This is definitely a good read. It really follows Elizabeth's life and it very interesting. However, some parts can be hard to follow because of time jumps/gaps. Also, I have found several grammatical mistakes (misspellings, improper punctuation, etc.). If you can pay close attention and overlook those mistakes, though, it's a great book!

This book is simply amazing. I must have read this fifteen or twenty times and it never loses its appeal. An incredibly complex psychological portrait of a compelling woman. Love it.
