"The Virgin Queen's Daughter" by Ella March Chase

Despite the somewhat racy looking covers that these so called historical fiction 'romances' seem plagued to have, this book is a most enjoyable read for those of us who enjoy Tudor & Elizabethan history. Of course many of us have heard the rumor told that Elizabeth became pregnant at a young age my her step mother, Jane's, husband, Lord Thomas Seymour. Far stranger things happened during that time and I suspect that Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen, becoming pregnant under such circumstances could possibly go a long way towards making the decisions of her later life even more understandable. Ella March Chase has done a remarkable job of fashioning a fabulously believable tale surrounding this timeless rumor and wites about what might have happened had Elizabeh, in fact, become pregnant and, in a not that unlikely turn of events, the child was surreptitiously spirited away to be raised in another family. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was sorry when it ended.

I hope there will be more great reads from this author!

Available from your fabulous local, independent, bookseller or from Amazon.

I wasn't familiar with this title. Thanks - I've been reading loads of Victorian mysteries via my iTouch Kindle app. I'll look for this title.

Best, Kyra
