Description

From the author of The Boleyn Wife comes a riveting tale of two Queens: "Bloody Mary" and her sister, Elizabeth I. In the wake of King Henry VIII's death, England's throne is left in a precarious state-as is the peculiar relationship between his two daughters. Mary, the once treasured elder, has been declared a bastard in favor of her flame-haired half-sister, Elizabeth, born of the doomed Anne Boleyn. Yet the bond between the sisters is palpable from the start. Now reinstated, Mary eventually assumes her place as queen. But as her religious zeal evolves into a reign of terror, young Elizabeth gains the people's favor. Gripped by a tormenting paranoia, Mary is soon convinced that her beloved sister is in fact her worst enemy. And the virginal Elizabeth, whose true love is her country, must defy England's tyrannical queen to make way for a new era . . . A brilliant portrait of one of England's most famous-and infamous-families, The Tudor Throne is an engrossing work of biographical fiction that explores the Tudor dynasty's sordid and extraordinary chapter in the pages of history.
