I could not put this down. Fascinating historical fiction about the 2nd wife of Robert Dudley and cousin to Elizabeth I (and obviously rival for Sir Robert's affections). I was so entranced by the story that when I went to Warwick Castle, I stopped by the church to see the tombs of Lettice and Robert Dudley.

Despite being a fan of Jean Plaidy (Victoria Holt) and all things Elizabeth I, I could not get into this book. I know enough about the real life relationship between Lettice and Elizabeth (and Dudley) and when this book failed to captivate me within the first 100 pages, I decided not to finish it.

book club edition. This novel (so aptly named) illustrates the life of Lettice, a cousin to Queen Elizabeth I, from the Queen's mother Anne Boleyn's side. At first the Queen dotes on Lettice, due largely in part because Elizabeth loves showering attention on relatives of her mother. However, Lettice soon finds herself in exhile from court after she secretly marries Elizabeth's favorite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Rochester.
