Summary:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author and “queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) comes a riveting and scandalous love triangle between a young woman on the brink of greatness, a young man whose ambition far exceeds his means, and the wife who cannot forgive them.

In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen, yet one woman hears the tidings with utter dread. She is Amy Dudley, wife of Sir Robert, and she knows that Elizabeth’s ambitious leap to the throne will draw her husband back to the center of the glamorous Tudor court, where he was born to be.

Elizabeth’s excited triumph is short-lived. She has inherited a bankrupt country where treason is rampant and foreign war a certainty. Her faithful advisors warns her that she will survive only if she marries a strong prince to govern the rebellious country, but the one man Elizabeth desires is her childhood friend, the ambitious Robert Dudley. As the young couple falls back in love, a question hangs in the air: can he really set aside his wife and marry the queen? When Amy is found dead, Elizabeth and Dudley are suddenly plunged into a struggle for survival.

    I can't give a better star for the book as I can't bear the narrator. I should have listened to the reviews! I really didn't want to skip a book though so I paid the extra $20CAD & literally am giving up. Its so off-putting I can't follow it. Disappointed!

    If Bianca Amato had narrated this book I might have been able to get through more of an hour of it. Bad narrator makes this very difficult to get through. The narration itself ruins the book. I can't understand why almost all of PG's books are narrated by the amazing Bianca Amato but a few aren't and they are better off read then listened to.

  • angela ream

    Very annoying narrator makes it difficult to listen to.

  • Dustin Cartwright

    Very hard to grasp perspectives in narration but good book

  • Jana Giacomi

    Davina porter is always entertaining. Loved the history and the fiction

    I love Philippa Gregory books! This is one of my favorites.
