Much has been written about Queen Elizabeth I, but few histories have drawn on the first-hand accounts of those who knew her most intimately: the ladies in waiting who shared her heavily curtained bedchamber, and sometimes even her bed. Telling the Queen's story through the eyes of her closest confidants, this compulsively readable book navigates a web of gossip, intrigue, conspiracy and scandal to reveal the private face of the monarch in all her power and pathos.
