A fresh and intriguing historical novel told in the voice
of Queen Elizabeth I's governess. Katherine Ashley, the
daughter of a poor country squire, happily secures an
education and a place for herself in a noble household.
But when Thomas Cromwell, a henchman for King Henry VIII,
brings her to the royal court as a spy, Kat enters into a
thrilling new world of the Tudor monarchs. Freed from a
life of espionage by Cromwell's downfall, Kat eventually
befriends Anne Boleyn. As a dying favor to the doomed
queen, Kat becomes governess and surrogate-mother to the
young Elizabeth Tudor. Together they suffer bitter exile,
assassination attempts, and imprisonment, barely escaping
with their lives. But they do, and when Elizabeth is
crowned, Kat continues to serve her, faithfully guarding
all the queen's secrets (including Elizabeth's affair with
the dashing Robert Dudley) . . . and ultimately emerging
as the lifelong confidante and true mother-figure to Queen
