Bess of Hardwick is a Tudor legend. Charismatic and feisty, with a flair for making money and building houses, she survived four husbands to become chatelaine of Chatsworth and Hardwick Hall. As jailor to Mary, Queen of Scots, she was at the heart of a power struggle for the English throne. But Bess had enemies and she must fight for survival. Will she create the dynasty she desperately craves, or will her ruthless ambition be her downfall? This is the story of the other woman who made her mark on the turbulent Elizabethan age.
