Description
As the daughter of the queen's own physician, Rebecca Lopez enjoys a life of privilege in Elizabeth's England, yet the tempestuous young woman is also a converso—a Jew who practices her prohibited religion in secret—and is helping others of her faith escape persecution in Spain. To satiate her hunger for freedom and adventure, she will even take to the bustling streets of London in male garb. But in the pursuit of her endeavors she meets a young playwright of equal determination—one William Shakespeare—seeking the killer of his mentor.

"The story is brilliantly original and breathtaking in its scope.... Rebecca's betrothed has just died during a mission and, though she mourns him, she yearns to be independent, to remain unmarried. Meanwhile, the young actor-playwright William Shakespeare is seeking revenge for the murder of his mentor, Harry Whitman. He decides to retrace his friend's last days in hopes of discovering clues to the killer's identity. Intent on different endeavors, Will and Rebecca eventually cross paths, changing their lives forever. Deft characterization and dazzling prose evoke the ambiance of the period. More than just a mystery, the novel is a spectacular epic—romantic, bawdy, witty and abounding with adventure. It's a stellar performance."—Publishers Weekly
