A BRILLIANT AND RUTHLESS MONARCH, SHE DEVOTED HER LIFE TO HER COUNTRY, AND DISCOVERED THAT IT WAS NOT ENOUGH . . . . .
in the glittering, treacherous court of Henry VIII, young Elizabeth’s early years were filled with danger. Hiding in the shadows, watching the unlucky women who followed her beloved mother, Anne Boleyn, she quickly learned how precarious it could be to wait on the fickle favours of men . . . So, the young princess vowed that she alone would control her destiny, and, when the nightmare reign of her sister, Mary, ended, Elizabeth was ready . . .
Tempestuous and brilliant, she lead her country to the heights of power – and into the bitter battles with anyone who opposed her. She surrounded herself with powerful men, ready to serve her with their fortunes and their lives. Although she was vain and susceptible to their charms, Elizabeth thought none of them could distract her. But one man had the power to jeopardize her most valued possession . . .
