Google Overview
It is 1588 and King Philip of Spain has assembled the greatest fleet and the most powerful army in the world. It is envisaged that the Armada, commanded by the brave and chivalric Duke Medina Sidonia, will crush the English and bring an end to the reign of Queen Elizabeth.

One man who has inside knowledge of this event is the young Henry Gresham. Caught up in the intrigues of Elizabeth's court as its inhabitants jostle for power and favour, he begins to realise that are many there who resent his youth, wealth and good looks. His position as a spy for Walsingham further endangers his life - and when he finds himself sailing on the Armada in order to spy on Sir Francis Drake, who is deemed suspicious of working for the Spanish, he's not entirely certain where the real threat lies...

I read a copy of this a few years ago and really enjoyed it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. What a lovely surprise. It’s a long time since I read any of this series. I look forward to it, and chocolates too! Mind you, something tells me that the the chocolates may be gone before I get round to the book! 😂

I enjoyed this book very much although I did find it a little hard going. It has inspired me to finally read one of the historical books from the bibliography, 'The Spanish Armada' by Colin Martin & Geoffrey Parker, which I picked up at the Leeds Uncon back in 2013!!

Thank you, Deltic, for a very welcome package that the postman delivered this morning, full of surprise books and stuff, much appreciated. I've been reading more than ever during lockdown and my to be read piles have been decreasing at an alarming rate. I'm delighted that kind and helpful BookCrossing friends have been restocking them for me . . .
I look forward to reading this, despite your less than enthusiastic journal entry, because I've previously enjoyed The Desperate Remedy and The Conscience of the King by this author.
Thank you again and Greetings to yorkshire-lass!
