“In una calda e silenziosa mattina di luglio del 1536, Lady Maria, figlia di Re Enrico VIII, giunge nel maestoso palazzo di campagna di Hatfield, dove la attende la sorella minore, la piccola Elisabetta. L’espressione compunta sul viso chiaro punteggiato di lentiggini, la bambina è stata causa di sofferenze e dolori inenarrabili per la figlia maggiore di Enrico VIII. La sua nascita, infatti, l’ha privata di tutto ciò che aveva di più caro: sua madre, la Regina Caterina, ripudiata a favore dell’intrigante Anna Bolena, il suo rango, le prospettive di salire al trono e trovare un marito e, infine, l’amore di suo padre, il re. I pericolosi rivolgimenti di un fato crudele hanno, però, ora cambiato anche la sorte di Elisabetta. La madre della bambina, Anna Bolena, è stata giustiziata nella Torre di Londra con l’accusa di tradimento, e Maria può provare soltanto dispiacere per la sorella nel comunicarle la terribile notizia. Privata del ruolo di erede legittima, chiamata dalla servitù semplicemente «lady» e non più «principessa», Elisabetta sembra soccombere al suo triste destino di «bastarda», così come prevede la legge inglese. Attraverso scandali privati e pettegolezzi pubblici, successioni legittime e contestate, si ritroverà, tuttavia, un giorno sull’ambito trono d’Inghilterra, celebrata come l’iconica Regina Vergine. Dopo l’enorme successo del suo primo romanzo, L’innocente, divenuto un bestseller internazionale, Alison Weir tratteggia con maestria i primi anni di vita della giovane Elisabetta Tudor, destinata a diventare la regina più intrigante e potente d’Inghilterra.
