Robin Maxwell's debut novel introduces Anne Boleyn and her
daughter, Elizabeth: one was queen for a thousand days, the other
for more than forty years. Both were passionate, headstrong women,
loved and hated by Henry VIII. At the beginning of Elizabeth's
reign, her mother's private diary is given to her by a mysterious
lady. In reading it, the young ruler ? herself embroiled in a
dangerous love affair ? discovers a great deal about her much
maligned mother. Through Anne's writing, Elizabeth finds an echo of
her own dramatic life as a powerful young woman at the center of
England's male establishment and, with the knowledge gained from
it, makes a resolution that will change the course of history. A
wonderfully juicy historical novel so convincing that it's
difficult to believe it is the author's first. . . . Maxwell brings
. . . all of bloody Tudor England vividly to life.? - Publishers
