Britain’s greatest queen, Elizabeth I, was also the bewildered, motherless child of an all-powerful father; a captive in the Tower of London; a shrewd politician; a brilliant scholar; a lover of the arts; and, eventually, an icon. In this unforgettable fictional memoir, Elizabeth recounts the emotional turmoil of her life: the loneliness of power; the heartbreak of her lifelong love affair with Robert Dudley; and the terrible guilt of ordering the execution of her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots.
