Excellently written period piece. This book is about queen Elizabeth I of England and her love affair with Robert Dudley.
If you have never read a book written by Philippa Gregory, you must if you enjoy stories based on history. The author magically weaves a tale of the reign of Elizabeth I and the relationship that forms between her and a man she comes to love and trust dearly. The problem is that he is not "proper" marriage material for a queen, according to her advisors. On top of that, Robert Dudley has his own motivations for loving Elizabeth. You will experience the ups and downs of some of the issues she dealt with during her reign as queen.
