In this "memoir" by Elizabeth I, legendary historical novelist Jean Plaidy reveals the Virgin Queen as she truly was: the bewildered, motherless child of an all-­powerful father; a captive in the Tower of London; a shrewd politician; a lover of the arts; and eventually, an icon of an era.

The complete story of Queen Elizabeth. This gives a very believable account of the virgin queen and her would-be lovers. To Elizabeth, power was what love was to other women and ruled her life. She instinctively knew that yielding to a man would diminish her power. This was an educational story of the Elizabethan times as well as a warm account of Elizabeth.

This is the second volume in Jean Plaidy's well-written "Queens of England" series of books. As in all the books in this series, it is written as a first person narrative, creating an intimacy of style that makes the book all the more compelling and immensely readable. Replete with fascinating period detail, political machinations, public personages, and historical events that were a part of the life of Queen Elizabeth I, the author builds a fascinating, three dimensional portrait of a woman and queen.

The author recounts the early years of Elizabeth, a troubled child, unsure of her place in the affections of her father, King Henry VIII. Knowing that he had had her mother, Anne Boleyn, beheaded, an impressionable Elizabeth observed the succession of women who took her mother's place and assessed how they fared at her father's hands.

Elizabeth lived through the reign of her younger half-brother, Edward VI, as well as that of her half-sister, Mary, during whose reign Elizabeth would come perilously close to losing her life under allegations of treason. Having survived the reign of her sister, whose legacy would forever enshrine her in history as "Bloody Mary" for her fanatical persecution of Catholics, Elizabeth would come to the throne as a Protestant with a penchant for religious tolerance towards her Catholic subjects.

The author takes the reader through the ascension of Elizabeth to the throne and her glorious reign, making the reader understand why Elizabeth I is revered as one of the greatest monarchs the world has ever known. From the early halcyon days of her reign to the more troubled ones that were to follow, the author fully engages the reader. The author also recounts the story of Elizabeth's close relationship with Robert Dudley, her Master of Horse, whom she would make the Earl of Leicester.

Through her, Dudley became one of the most powerful men in her kingdom, as Elizabeth I granted him all but his most fervent wish, which was to have her hand in marriage. This wily and scholarly Queen would not share her power with any man, not even Dudley, a man she professed to love. Nonetheless, she would have a life long relationship with Robert Dudley, and his death, while in his fifties, would mark Elizabeth I for the remainder of her long life.

The fractious relationships Elizabeth I would have with some of her courtiers are recounted, as are the ones that were more harmonious. Familial relationships, scandals, and intrigues would also have their impact, not just on Elizabeth I, but on the monarchy and the world, as well. Such is the lot of monarchs, and the reign of Elizabeth I was no different. World events and their effect on England also pepper this book, and at the center of it all was the indomitable Elizabeth I, a queen regnant who made England into a world power with which to be reckoned. Her reign would go down in history as the glorious Elizabethan era.

This is a wonderful book that those with a penchant for historical fiction will, no doubt, enjoy. Ms. Plaidy is a master storyteller, seamlessly weaving a tapestry of events and personalities that make this book one to be savored.

The story of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, from her auspicious birth as the daughter of the fascinating Anne Boleyn, through her fears of losing her life under her father's, brother's and sister's reigns, and continuing until the end of her life.

Jean Plaidy always presents history in such a fascinating way. By presenting Elizabeth's story from her own perspective, it makes the history seem alive and Elizabeth as a vibrant woman, not as the dry mannequin she seems like in history books.

Plaidy has done a great job with Elizabeth. Although it's written sort of like a diary, which can get boring, she manages to keep the pace going well. Since she a writer who stays true to history, we gain not only knowledge about this period but also insights into the young girl frightened for her life who matures into an old queen still longing for love and admiration. A really good read, and there aren't many books these days that can keep me engaged for four hundred pages.

Very interesting as this book was read in the first person.
Seemed like Queen Elizabeth I talking directly to me.
