The Virgins Lover by Philippa Gregory

The National Bestseller In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. One woman hears the tidings with utter dread. She is Amy Dudley, wife of Sir Robert, and she knows that Elizabeths ambitious leap to the throne will draw her husband back to the center of the glamorous Tudor court, where he was born to be.Elizabeths excited triumph is short-lived. She has inherited a bankrupt country where treason is rampant and foreign war a certainty. Her faithful advisor William Cecil warns her that she will survive only if she marries a strong prince to govern the rebellious country, but the one man Elizabeth desires is her childhood friend, the ambitious Robert Dudley. As the young couple falls in love, a question hangs in the air: can he really set aside his wife and marry the queen? When Amy is found dead, Elizabeth and Dudley are suddenly plunged into a struggle for survival.Philippa GregorysThe Virgins Loveranswers the question about an unsolved crime that has fascinated detectives and historians for centuries. Intelligent, romantic, and compelling,The Virgins Loverpresents a young woman on the brink of greatness, a young man whose ambition exceeds his means, and the wife who cannot forgive them.
