Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this "memoir" by Elizabeth I, legendary historical novelist Jean Plaidy reveals the Virgin Queen as she truly was: the bewildered, motherless child of an all-powerful father; a captive in the Tower of London; a shrewd politician; a lover of the arts; and eventually, an icon of an era. It is the story of her improbable rise to power and the great triumphs of her reign--the end of religious bloodshed, the settling of the New World, the defeat of the Spanish Armada. Brilliantly clever, a scholar with a ready wit, she was also vain, bold, and unpredictable, a queen who commanded--and won--absolute loyalty from those around her.

But in these pages, in her own voice, Elizabeth also recounts the emotional turmoil of her life: the loneliness of power; the heartbreak of her lifelong love affair with Robert Dudley, whom she could never marry; and the terrible guilt of ordering the execution of her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots. In this unforgettable novel, Elizabeth emerges as one of the most fascinating and controversial women in history, and as Englands greatest monarch.

Synopsis:

Plaidy presents Elizabeth I, England's greatest monarch, in the many stages of her dramatic life a bewildered, motherless child of an all-powerful father, a captive in the Tower of London, a would-be lover frustrated by the exigencies of politics and power, and eventually, the icon of her era.

Synopsis:

Jean Plaidy was one of the most beloved and successful historical novelists of the 20th century. In Spiring 2003. Three Rivers Press began publishing a series of 10 reissues of Plaidy's most popular novels. Their success (more than 72,500 copies of the first four books in print) exceeded all expectations and whetted the appetite of historical fiction readers for more novels from this master of the genre. Here, then, art the fifth and sixth novels in the series. Jean Plaidy presents Elizabeth I, England's greatest monarch, in the many stages of her dramatic life a bewildered, motherless child of an all-powerful father, a captive in the Tower of London, a consummate politician and statesman, a would-be lover frustrated by the exigencies of politics and power, and eventually, the icon of her era who launched England into the time of its greatest glory.
