Summary:

In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. Elizabeth's excited triumph is short-lived. She has inherited a bankrupt country where treason is rampant and foreign war a certainty. Her only chance for survival is to marry, but the one man Elizabeth desires is her childhood friend, the ambitious -- and married -- Robert Dudley. As the young couple falls in love, a question hangs in the air: can he really set aside his wife and marry the queen? Intelligent, romantic, and compelling, The Virgin's Lover is the story of a young woman on the brink of greatness.

    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.
