I was only two when my father, the king, executed my mother, Anne Boleyn. People say she was a witch who stole his heart with her dark enchantments, but I can remember nothing of her. Yet still the malicious rumours of others haunt me. Now the gossips are saying vile things that threaten me. I am being held captive in my own palace until I admit that their lies are true. I try not to show I'm afraid, but if I cannot prove that I am innocent, I will be condemned to die... Like mother, like daughter?
The thrilling tale of the young Elizabeth I, based on real-life events.
"Full of palace intrigue and shot through with dark magic, this is a thrilling story of a feisty young girl’s fight for survival.” Julia Eccleshare for LoveReading4Kids
