9780143120445: Elizabeth I: The Novel

This is the new novel from the commercial historical women's fiction author Margaret George. The legendary Elizabeth Tudor is history's most enigmatic queen: the virgin with many suitors; the victor of the Armada who hated war; and the jewel-bedecked woman always pinching pennies. Elizabeth's flame-haired cousin, Lettice Knollys, is her bitter rival. In love with Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, and mother to the Earl of Essex, the mercurial nobleman who challenged Elizabeth's throne - Lettice has been intertwined with Elizabeth since childhood. This is a story of two women of fierce intellect and desire: one trying to protect her country and throne; the other trying to regain power and position for her family. Their rivalry soon involves everyone close to Elizabeth - from the famed courtiers who enriched the crown to the legendary poets and playwrights who paid homage to it with their works. And, for Elizabeth, considering herself married to her people meant ruling as much from the heart as from the head...
