Summary

In the grim recesses of the Tower of London, two captives begin a passionate love affair that will last years but is destined to destroy them. One is Robert Dudley, the other is the future Queen of England, Elizabeth I.

Pardoned by Queen Mary, Dudley and Elizabeth are freed, but their mutual longing must be from a distance: Dudley is married and, as the next heir to the throne, Elizabeth must tread carefully.
