Legacy Author:Susan Kay Winner of the 1985 Historical Novel Prize
Winner of Betty Trask Prize
Legacy is the story of Queen Elizabeth 1, a woman who spends a lifetime in search of a man strong enough to be her equal and of the men who suffer for their devotion to her.
An excellent, excellent period account, lightly fictionalized, which is always the very best in historical fiction, of the life of Henry VIII's second daughter, Elizabeth I. A fascinating girl and woman, who excelled at statecraft and courtly politics---this woman controlled history then, and could move mountains today. A must read for any historical fiction fan, I cannot recommend more highly.
