Synopses & Reviews
Mary Devereux, seamstress to Walter Raleigh, and later to Elizabeth I, works in the shadows at court, embroidering a precious cloak for her master's visit to the Queen. Each stitch carries Mary's dreams and longings, while silently she observes gossip, dark secrets, and one fateful night, murder! A deadly traitor has infiltrated the court, and Mary's knowledge places her in the gravest of danger. An original and chilling twist on a memorable period of Elizabethan history.
A brilliantly realized historical novel that tells the story behind the cloak Sir Walter Raleigh famously sacrificed to spare the shoes of his Queen.
