A Court Affair by Emily Purdy

The scandalous love triangle between Queen Elizabeth I, Robert Dudley and his wife Amy, makes interesting reading in this fascinating novel by Emily Purdy.

Set from the time that Elizabeth is imprisoned in the Tower of London accused of conspiring to steal the throne, by her half-sister Queen Mary and where her affair with Robert is said to have begun, through to her early reign on the throne as Queen of England and Amy’s mysterious death. This is a truly brilliant portrait of a significant time in Tudor history. If you enjoy reading Philippa Gregory books, then you will find this book is in the same league of historic story telling, of mixing historic fact, with fiction to create a remarkable read.
