From the Back Cover
The daughter of James I, the Princess Elizabeth would not be merely her father's pawn in the royal marriage market.
The court of James I is a dangerous place, with factions led by warring cousins Robert Cecil and Francis Bacon. While Europe seethes with conflict between Protestants and Catholics, James sees himself as a grand peacemaker--and wants to make his mark by trading his children for political treaties.
Henry, Prince of Wales, and his sister, Elizabeth, find themselves far more popular than their distrusted father, a perilous position for a child of a jealous king. When Elizabeth is introduced to one suitor, Frederick, the Elector Palatine, she feels the unexpected possibility of happiness. But her fate is not her own to choose--and when her parents brutally withdraw their support for the union, Elizabeth must take command of her own future, with the help of an unexpected ally, the slave girl Tallie, who seeks her own, very different freedom.

In Princess Elizabeth, Christa Dickason creates a delightful character, intelligent, but naive, powerful and yet weak and someone damaged by lack of affection. The author even manages to shed a sympathetic and intelligent light on the character of James I, who described himself as 'the wisest fool in Christendom'.
I am surprised by the review here that says the characters are one-dimensional. I felt totally the opposite. And as for the 'race' question. I don't think it's right to say that Elizabeth's feelings towards Tallie are twenty-first century at all or that everyone else was 'racist'. Mostly the attitude of others was born of ignorance and lack of intelligence. Which is still the case today. And it was great to see Francis Quoynt make a cameo appearance at the end to create a spectacular firework display.
I can't wait to read Christa's next novel.
