This book has convinced me that I like historical fiction. I completely lost myself in it. I kept looking up parts of the story only to find out that they were the actually historical events of Prince Llywelyn the Great of Wales' life. The timeline has been changed a bit. I love history and this is one of many great stories well told.
When the young Queen Elizabeth I is entrusted with Anne Boleyn's secret diary, she discovers a great deal about the much-maligned mother she never knew. And on learning the truth about her lascivious and despotic father, Henry VIII, she vows never to relinquish control to any man. But this avowal doesn't prevent Elizabeth from pursuing a torrid love affair with her horsemaster, Robin Dudley.
