Description
"Popular historian [Alison] Weir's second fictionalized foray into England's Tudor period, which has been her nonfiction mainstay all along, follows the impressive Innocent Traitor: A Novel of Lady Jane Grey. She now tells the story of Queen Elizabeth I's early life, most specifically her perilous, even, at times, life-threatening, path to the throne. Daughter of Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth was bastardized upon her mother's downfall; later recognized as an heir to her father in order of succession after her brother and older sister, Elizabeth nevertheless remained officially illegitimate. Victim in her early teens of the sexual advances of her stepfather, Thomas Seymour, Elizabeth also endured rough treatment from the hands of her sister Queen Mary I, because of her Protestantism and the threat she posed to Queen Mary's obsessive Catholicism. As Weir so painstakingly creates her, within the precocious young Elizabeth are seen the seeds of the wise, successful adult queen. When 'understanding' of a character reaches a level of 'identity' with her or him, especially in historical fiction, the result is a compelling, even irresistible, read. Having established that identity here, Weir offers an exceptionally perceptive as well as imaginative interpretation of the most significant monarch in English history."Booklist (starred review)
