    DescriptionEngland, 1536. Home to the greatest, most glittering court in English history. But beneath the dazzling facade lies treachery ...Elizabeth Tudor is daughter to Henry VIII, the most powerful king England has ever known. She is destined to ascend the throne, and deferred to as the King's heiress, but that all changes when her mother Anne Boleyn - Henry's great passion and folly - is executed for treason. Elizabeth 's life alters in a heartbeat. A pawn in the savage game of Tudor power politics, she is disinherited, declared a bastard, and left with only her quick wits to rely on for her very existence. But Elizabeth is determined to survive, to foil those who want to destroy her, or who are determined to use her as a puppet for their own lethal ambition, and to reclaim her birthright ...

    Review quote
    "This novel takes us into a very plausible and frightening 16th-century world... Can Elizabeth survive? Well, you know the answer but this Tudor thriller is so exciting that you find yourself amazed that she did." Daily Express "This enjoyable novel by a popular historian tells the story of Elizabeth I before she became Queen... She emerges as a thoughtful, wise, precocious and likeable survivor. The novel is meticulously researched and convincingly captures the intimate details of the future Monarch's daily life." Mail on Sunday "Weir employs contemporary gossip to intriguing effect. With a style that casts even Philippa Gregory's stately gavottes in a dashing new light, Weir convinces with her scholarly grasp" Independent "Weir's Elizabeth is nuanced and enchanting, and the author lends a refreshing perspective to well-known characters and events... [An] entertaining look into the rarely explored life of one of England's most fascinating characters" Publishers Weekly "[A] compelling, even irresistible read... Weir offers an exceptionally perceptive as well as imaginative interpretation of the most significant monarch in English history" Booklist (starred review)
