Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tortuous relationship between Elizabeth I of England and James VI of Scotland runs its course here. Using extant letters and documents, Garrett evokes the passionate and dissembling temperament of the queen and the duplicity of her secretary, Robert Cecil. "Garrett draws us into the total reality of Elizabethan life....Once you enter into its spirit, you will be unable to stop reading" (Washington Post).

Synopsis:

The essence of the Elizabethan Age comes vividly alive in The Succession, in which the tortuous relationship between Elizabeth I of England and James VI of Scotland runs its course. Elizabeth is dying and must appoint a successor. Using extant letters and documents, George Garrett evokes the passionate and dissembling temperament of the queen and the duplicitous machinations of her secretary, Robert Cecil. This brilliant historical novel provides a panoramic vision of the age as it looks back in time to the aura of Henry VIII and ahead to the accession of Charles I.
