Description

A Spellbinding Tale of England’s Most Passionate Queen—and the Three Men Whose Destinies Belonged to Her Alone. “Fast-paced…one of the most fascinating monarchs in history.” —New York Times Book Review “A stupendous achievement…a book that captures Queen Elizabeth I completely.” —Mainstream Historical Beloved for its stunning storytelling, Legacy offers an exquisite portrait of the queen who defined an era. Tracing the unlikely path from her tragic childhood to her ruthless confrontations with Mary, Queen of Scots, and capturing in all its glory her brilliant reign as Europe’s most celebrated queen, Legacy peels back the layers from a mysterious monarch and satisfies the questions of history. Winner of the Georgette Heyer Historical Novel Prize and the Betty Trask Award, Legacy gives us Elizabeth the woman: proud, passionate, and captivating in her intensity. She inspired men to love her with bewitching devotion, no matter what the cost, but the depth of her love for England required a sacrifice that would haunt her to the grave. “Full of dramatic twists and turns, not to mention a scintillating central character and colorful supporting cast. Readers will lose themselves for hours in this richly entertaining novel.” —Booklist Includes Bonus Reading Group Guide
