Clever, learned and skilled in diplomacy, as queen she presided over a golden age of literature, exploration and discovery. A selective version of events from Elizabeth's life focuses on her younger years, without distorting the picture of a reign dominated by war, political intrigue and religious disputes. Lives in Action is a series of narrative biographies that recount the lives of some of the key figures in history. Page-turning, thrilling plots that read like fiction will keep the most reluctant reader hooked.
