The Virgin Queen's Daughter Summary

The Virgin Queen's Daughter by Ella March Chase

The court of the Queen Elizabeth is a hot-bed of intrigue and ambition...

It is a place where reputations can stand or fall on the merest hint of scandal. Lingering rumours even surround the Virgin Queen herself, despite the fate of those foolish enough to besmirch her reputation.

Recently arrived in court, Nell de Lacey is surprised to discover that many think she bears more than a passing resemblance to the younger queen. That, coupled with an old mystery about a missing portion of the Queen's past some years prior, is enough to set tongues wagging. And wherever the truth lies, even the rumour is sufficient to place Nell on a dangerous path that could all so easily end with her head on a block...

The Virgin Queen's Daughter Reviews

An engaging story, well researched and skillfully written * Boston Globe *
An absolutely wonderful read * Michelle Moran *

Chase's prose is engaging, and her rich, detailed portraits of Renaissance women,
particularly those of a kindly but haunted Mary I and a vicious, conceited Elizabeth, are unforgettable

* Booklist *
Chase expertly blends a detailed historical setting, intriguing mix of real and fictional characters, and clever plot lightly sweetened with a dash of romance into a completely captivating novel * Chicago Tribune *

About Ella March Chase

When Ella March Chase was in school, she informed her teacher she didn't need to learn multiplication tables because she was going to be a famous writer when she grew up. At twenty-five, she combined her passion for researching history and spinning stories. Her daughter Kate claims even the family dogs were discovered while researching King Charles II - Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.

When travelling to England she fell under the spell of the Tower of London - the infamous Traitor's Gate, the chapel where beheaded queens lay buried, the story of the two princes allegedly murdered by Richard III. Ella began unearthing the obscure historical details that make larger than life figures painfully human. From that fascination, the concepts for The Virgin Queen's Daughter and The Reluctant Queen emerged.
