    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 engaging book navigates a web of gossip, intrigue, conspiracy and scandal to reveal the private face of the monarch in all her power and pathos.
