What a fabulous book!
It is set in the time of Elizabeth I in England. Plots and conspiracies are in the air. Kit Marlowe has turned to spycraft to pay the bills, and Alice Wood a printer's widow is trying to rebuild her life. Oriana the Faerie Queen has brought her host to London to search for her lost son; her search will change their lives.
The period is conveyed with verve and joy, the story is fast paced and exciting, and as always with Goldstein there are many levels to be plumbed. This is a book which will stand many readings. If you liked Shakespeare in Love you might consider giving this a try...
