The Tudor Secret by C.W. Gortner
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I'm a sucker for anything about the Tudors. In this novel, Brendan Prescott, an orphan raised by the Dudley's housekeeper, discovers that he is more than just an orphan. Court intrigue is at a highpoint when he turns 20--King Edward is dying, Princess Mary is a dreaded Catholic, and Princess Elizabeth isn't allowed at court because she's nothing but trouble. The Dudleys are trying to keep control of England with deceit and lies, but Elizabeth's protector William Cecil is trying to get his lady on the throne.
Ahhh, the intrigue.
I enjoyed this--Prescott is a likable character, even if he is fictional!
