This historical account of Queen Elizabeth I and the intrigue and politics of Tudor times makes this an interesting read. The detailed images of the court setting, along with the character flaws and the inter-twined romances add to the drama of this period piece. A good read for lovers of Tudor fiction with enough non-fictional details to make it entertaining and thought provoking.
