Maxwell’s novel, performed with a regal imperiousness by Angele Masters, presents a fascinating what-if scenario. In her time, the so-called "virgin queen", Elizabeth was rumored to have a close relationship with her Master of the Horse, Robin Dudley. In The Queen's Bastard, Elizabeth has given birth to an illegitimate son, Arthur, who is raised in the countryside by a kindly gentleman. When Arthur learns his true heritage as an adult, he seeks a reunion.
Stuffed with authentic period details and memorable dialogue, this book will be irresistible to fans of historical fiction.
Set against the sweeping, meticulously rendered backdrop of court intrigues, international scandals, and England's battle against the Spanish Armada, The Queen's Bastard deftly juxtaposes Elizabeth and Leicester's tumultuous relationship with the memoirs of the adventurous son lost to them -- yet ultimately discovered.
