Historical | Fiction
It is winter, 1553. Pursued by the Inquisition, Hannah
Green, a fourteen-year-old Jewish girl, is forced to flee
Spain with her father. But Hannah is no ordinary refugee.
Her gift of "Sight," the ability to foresee the future, is
priceless in the troubled times of the Tudor court. Hannah
is adopted by the glamorous Robert Dudley, the charismatic
son of King Edward's protector, who brings her to court as a
"holy fool" for Queen Mary and, ultimately, Queen Elizabeth.
Hired as a fool but working as a spy; promised in wedlock
but in love with her master; endangered by the laws against
heresy, treason, and witchcraft, Hannah must choose between
the safe life of a commoner and the dangerous intrigues of
the royal family that are inextricably bound up in her own
yearnings and desires.
Teeming with vibrant period detail and peopled by
characters seamlessly woven into the sweeping tapestry of
history, The Queen's Fool is another rich and
emotionally resonant gem from this wonderful storyteller.
