Describes the emotions of Queen Elizabeth I. For although her great passion was for power, she was capable of more human feelings such as her love for the worthless Earl of Leicester. Also brought to life are the monarch's vanities, her favourites and her political intrigues - including her struggle with her cousin Mary, Queen of Scots, for the throne of England. The author, who twice won a US Literary Guild Award, also wrote "Anne Boleyn", "Victoria", "Valentina", "Far Fly the Eagles", "Curse Not the King" and "Imperial Highness".

Having endured years of exile after the execution of her mother, Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth I ascended to the throne of England in 1558. Her older half-sister, Mary, and Mary's Catholic husband had left the country in religious turmoil and financial disaster. Cool, shrewd, intelligent Elizabeth rebuilt the empire. Sara Sherborne's performance of this remarkable biography skillfully blends the drama and pageantry of world affairs and royalty with the delicacy and vulnerability of a very young woman responsible for a mighty kingdom. Her Elizabeth can be icy and decisive one moment, overcome by emotion the next. This balance brings life to the history, and to the monarch. Sherborne's portrayals of other characters in Elizabeth's court are similarly credible, even in the process of their aging throughout the thirty-plus years of the story.
