"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"-- Provided by publisher.
