Elizabethan London comes alive in this richly atmospheric novel about Shakespare's "Dark Lady." Aemilia Bassano, once favored by the queen, is now on the edge of disaster. Barely surviving a miserable marriage and fearing exposure to the plague, Aemilia must turn to her estranged lover, William Shakespeare, in order to save her son. Kirkus Reviews calls O'Reilly's American debut a "gripping novel with a fesisty feminine voice."
