Overview

The New York Times bestselling author of Mistress Shakespeare delivers the epic tale of Elizabeth I's most trusted companion—a commoner who lived among royals....

Katherine Ashley, the clever, beguiling daughter of a poor country beekeeper, catches the attention of powerful, ambitious Thomas Cromwell—henchman for King Henry VIII. Cromwell secures for Kat a place in the royal court, but as a reluctant spy.

Plunged into a treacherous game of shifting alliances, Kat is entrusted by Anne Boleyn to protect her daughter, Elizabeth. In the face of exile, assassination attempts, imprisonment, and a romantic flirtation that could cost the young princess dearly, Kat will risk everything—even her own secret love—for her bright, clever Elizabeth.
