The Quality of Mercy by Faye Kellerman

Rebecca Lopez enjoys a life of privilege in Elizabeth's England -- yet she guards secrets she dares not reveal. The beautiful, tempestuous daughter of the queen's own physician, Rebecca is also a converso -- a Jew who practices her prohibited religion clandestinely -- helping others of her banned faith escape persecution and death. And her insatiable hunger for excitement often takes her to the bustling streets of London in male garb to experience the kind of adventure available only to men. But one such outing is leading her into a dangerous viper's nest built of intrigue and foul murder in the company of a dashing young actor who inflames her romantic passions, even as he escorts her toward peril, a charming and fearless would-be playwright who calls himself Will Shakespeare.

I thought it was too long and dragged a bit. The characters weren't very likable for the most part.

This is historical fiction explaining a horrific period of history that is ignored in the history books. It is historical correct and if one is disgusted, good, because it was awful. Very well written and the characters are well developed.

O.K. I have not read it yet. But I have been looking for it for a l-o-n-g time. I have heard nothing but good reviews. Both Kellermans are great. Faye uses her background on the Jewish life & religion. Jonathan uses his backgound in psychology. As a student of both religion & psychology I can say they weave great tales for the reader to enjoy.
