The Virgin Queen's Daughter Paperback
The court of the Queen Elizabeth is a hot-bed of intrigue and ambition...It is a place where reputations can stand or fall on the merest hint of scandal.
Lingering rumours even surround the Virgin Queen herself, despite the fate of those foolish enough to besmirch her reputation.
Recently arrived in court, Nell de Lacey is surprised to discover that many think she bears more than a passing resemblance to the younger queen.
That, coupled with an old mystery about a missing portion of the Queen's past some years prior, is enough to set tongues wagging. And wherever the truth lies, even the rumour is sufficient to place Nell on a dangerous path that could all so easily end with her head on a block...

Review by Lisa17
3.5 stars really. The story was definitely slow to begin with, but did feel like more of a 'thriller' towards the end. I had no idea what would happen and did care more about the characters and story by that point! The ideas were good, but so much of it was just so difficult to believe, even small details. However, it's obviously a work of fiction and not meant to be taken seriously, and I did enjoy some of the more shocking events. The second half, when I reached it, was very entertaining. Recommended, but may take a little while to get into.
