Product description

Review

"Should be savored . . . Weir wastes no time captivating her audience."--Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Stunning . . . As always, [Alison] Weir renders the bona fide plot twists of her heroine's life with all the mastery of a thriller author, marrying historical fact with licentious fiction."--The Star Tribune

"Engaging and dramatic . . . [Weir] laudably sticks to the historic facts while simultaneously using her imaginative gifts."--The Star-Ledger

"The history itself is inherently dramatic, augmented here by Weir's usual lush detail, which stimulates." --Booklist

About the Author

Alison Weir is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels Innocent Traitor and The Lady Elizabeth and several historical biographies, including Mistress of the Monarchy, Queen Isabella, Henry VIII, Eleanor of Aquitaine, The Life of Elizabeth I, and The Six Wives of Henry VIII. She lives in Surrey, England with her husband and two children.
