Synopsis

The Queen's Maid by June Crebbin

Lady Jane has a taste for Elizabethan adventure in this spirited historical Racing Read. Lady Jane Hargrave is a reluctant maid of honour at the court of Queen Elizabeth I - but before she knows it she is appearing in a Shakespeare play, helping Francis Drake fight off the Spanish Armada and saving the Queen's life. Long live the Queen! Long live adventure!
