The cover of the book says it's "A Novel of Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley". In my opinion, it's more of a novel of Elizabeth I and AMY Dudley. This book is far more about Amy Dudley, the much dusregarded wife of Robert Dudley. Little is written about her, but she was a significant factor in Robert's quest for the Crown of England.

In the beginning of this novel, the author jumped around in the time line.....something I do not like. But, after a few chapters she stuck to a chronological time line. I had forgotten that Ms. Purdy did that in her books. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the book. Reading from the standpoint of Amy Dudley was quite interesting to me as I have not read much regarding her. The manner of Amy's death in this book could have been how things happened. The mystery of her death will never be solved, and it carried major repercussions for Robert.
