The future Elizabeth I has been imprisoned by her half-sister Queen Mary at the ruined, isolated palace of Woodstock, and 15-year-old Meg Lytton is sent to serve her. But Meg is no ordinary girl: taught by her aunt, a white witch, she has unusual magical gifts that soon become of interest to the outcast princess. But when Alejandro de Castillo, a young Spanish priest joins the household, Meg finds herself in peril - and realises she is rapidly falling in love with a dangerous enemy.
Victoria Lamb's first historical romance immerses readers in the atmosphere of intrigue and mutual suspicion of the Tudor court. Fast-paced and suspenseful, this is a novel which will appeal to both fans of the supernatural and those with an interest in historical fiction.
