King of Shadows

(1 reviews with an average rating of 1 out of 5)

Publisher: Random House

Nat Field, an orphaned American actor, is taken ill during a performance and slips back in time to the Tudor era, where he finds himself acting alongside William Shakespeare in a secret performance for Queen Elizabeth I.

Cooper wonderfully creates the excitement of theatre, the charisma of Shakespeare, and the pain of bereavement.
