As the Spanish Armada approaches Irish shores, Elizabeth I feels the full burden of her royal office. She must not let England fall to her former husband, King Philip of Spain. And Princess Anabel, their daughter, has yet to declare with whom her allegiance--and her support--lie. Exiled Stephen Courtenay is in France with his brother, Kit, who has his own reasons for avoiding England. But rumblings of war, a sinister plot, and their loyalty to the crown call them home. Yet not even Pippa Courtenay, their sister, gifted with divine sight, can foresee the grave danger that awaits them all. As Queen Elizabeth commits her riches, her honor, and her people to the approaching conflict, she will risk everything--even her life--to preserve England's freedom.

Complicating matters is Elizabeth's beloved daughter -- the result of the Queen's tempestuous marriage with her worst enemy: King Philip of Spain. As Elizabeth commits her riches, her honor, and her people to the coming war, the Queen will risk everything--even her own life--to preserve England's freedom"--
