Abstract:

"Perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir, The Virgin's War is award-winning author Laura Andersen's gripping conclusion in the trilogy about the next generation of Tudor royals, bringing to life the drama and intrigue of Queen Elizabeth I; her daughter, Anabel, the Princess of Wales; and two countries locked in a battle for the ages. 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. Find your next book club pick, read special features, and more. Join the Random House Reader's Circle"--

"The conclusion of the Tudor Legacy series. It's 1585, and the balance of European power is tilting dangerously toward war. It will take all of Elizabeth Tudor's skill and wiles to defend England from the looming threat of the Spanish Armada. 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"--
