Journal Entry 1 by wingpippiswing from Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Monday, September 14, 2015
Novel based on the blockbuster film Elizabeth. A good read, but if you've seen the movie first, you can't escape seeing Cate Blanchett throughout the novel talking as Elizabeth!
***
Under the rule of Queen Mary, a zealous Catholic, England has been reduced to a country racked by financial and religious instability and riddled with political intrigue. The county buzzes with conspiracy and terror as Mary steps up her policy of Protestant repression in the last days before her death.
The heir-apparent is Mary's younger sister, Elizabeth, whose life is under threat as the Queen's death approaches. Yet she survives to become Queen herself - and to play a game with the highest stakes of all. Dangers abound from France and Scotland, and even from inside the court. Rival factions agree on only one issue - that Elizabeth must marry and produce an heir. There are several contenders but only one with a place in Elizabeth's heart- her childhood sweetheart, Lord Robert Dudley.

Journal Entry 4 by Andrea99 at Brighton & Hove, East Sussex United Kingdom on Wednesday, February 24, 2016
This is a REALLY good book!!!! It starts with Elizabeth's imprisonment in the Tower of London at age 22, and goes through her life until Robert Dudley commits the final treasonable betrayal, and we see the emergence of the bald, bewigged white-as-snow faced Queen Elizabeth 1. What a story.....!
