King of Shadows

Publisher: Random House

Review

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.
