From master historian Paul Doherty comes a detective story with a difference: tracking down the real Elizabeth I, and capturing the atmosphere of Elizabethan and Jacobean England. Written as a 'faction', THE SECRET LIFE OF ELIZABETH I interprets original sources through one of the Queen's ladies-in-waiting. These illuminating 'recollections' form the book, uncovering everything from the passionate relationship between Elizabeth and Robert Dudley, to the stunning revelation that they had a son, Arthur Dudley, seized by the Spanish in 1587.
