Elizabeth Tudor prepares for the threat posed by the Spanish Armada and will stop at nothing to preserve her country’s freedom in the third and final installment of the trilogy, following The Virgin’s Spy
Perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir, The Virgin’s War is award-winning author Laura Andersen’s gripping conclusion in the trilogy about the next generation of Tudor royals, bringing to life the drama and intrigue of Queen Elizabeth I; her daughter, Anabel, Princess of Wales; and two countries locked in a battle for the ages.
With the Spanish Armada sailing closer to Irish shores, Elizabeth I feels the full burden of her royal office. She must not let England fall to her former husband, King Phillip of Spain. And Princess Anabel, their daughter, has yet to declare with whom her allegiance—and her support—lie.
Exiled Stephen Courtenay is in France with his brother, Kit, who has his own reasons for avoiding England. But rumblings of war, a sinister plot, and their loyalty to the crown call them home. Yet not even Pippa Courtenay, their sister, gifted with divine sight, can foresee the grave danger that awaits them all. As Queen Elizabeth commits her riches, her honor, and her people to the approaching conflict, she will risk everything—even her life—to preserve England’s freedom.
