Synopses & Reviews
Bestselling author Jane Feather conspires with history to create a dazzling novel about two very real -- and very wily -- queens.
As a junior lady of Queen Elizabeth's bedchamber, Rosamund records everything she observes for her cousin, the devious secretary of state Sir Francis Walsingham. Her reward is a chance for a good marriage. But Rosamund's unsanctioned relationship with dashing courtier Will Creighton causes Elizabeth to send her away to the remote castle where Mary Queen of Scots is imprisoned. There, Walsingham expects Rosamund to uncover a plot against Elizabeth.
Jane Feather steps beyond the bounds of the romance genre with a mainstream historical novel that brings Elizabethan England vividly to life.
