Review Text

A fictionized biography of Sir Walter Raleigh, his voyages, his discoveries, his loves, his queen. Intensely dramatic and an excellent delineation of Raleigh, torn between two worlds, Shakespeare's and Elizabeth's, between idealism, chivalry and ruthless worldliness. Her popular I Met A Gypsy has made her name known and this will not disappoint those who liked the first book. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
