Read full description of the books The Virgin Queen's Daughter:
The court of the Queen Elizabeth is a hot-bed of intrigue and ambition...
It is a place where reputations can stand or fall on the merest hint of scandal. Lingering rumours even surround the Virgin Queen herself, despite the fate of those foolish enough to besmirch her reputation.
Recently arrived in court, Nell de Lacey is surprised to discover that many think she bears more than a passing resemblance to the younger queen. That, coupled with an old mystery about a missing portion of the Queen's past some years prior, is enough to set tongues wagging. And wherever the truth lies, even the rumour is sufficient to place Nell on a dangerous path that could all so easily end with her head on a block...
Read information about the authorWhen Ella March Chase was in third grade, she informed her teacher she didn't need to learn multiplication tables because she was going to be a famous writer when she grew up. At twenty-five, she combined her passion for researching history and spinning stories. Her daughter Kate claims even the family dogs were discovered while researching King Charles II-- Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
When traveling to England she fell under the spell of the Tower of London—the infamous Traitor’s Gate, the chapel where beheaded queens lay buried, the story of the two princes allegedly murdered by Richard III. Ella began unearthing the obscure historical details that make larger than life figures painfully human. While reading biographies of Elizabeth Tudor, she kept stumbling across references to rumors that the 'Virgin Queen' secretly bore a child. Fascinated by the possibility, she delved deeper, discovering that a midwife actually claimed to have delivered a baby to 'a very fair lady' she vowed was Elizabeth.
Ella began to imagine-- what if the midwife, now nurse to a fiercely intellectual red-haired girl-- claimed the child was Elizabeth's daughter? The queen was constantly beleaguered by those who labeled her 'Anne Boleyn's bastard' with no right to the throne. The existence of 'the Virgin Queen's daughter'-- even in rumor-- could mean disaster. If the child were real it would be a weapon that could topple her from her throne. Elizabeth Tudor claimed in her famous speech at the crisis of the Spanish Armada "I have the heart and stomach of a king." Would she have the ruthlessness of her own father, Henry VIII, to save her crown from such a threat?
