*A stunning new unabridged recording*

A sumptuous historical novel set in the court of Elizabeth I, from Sunday Times No.1 bestseller Philippa Gregory, the author of The Other Boleyn Girl.

1558. After years of waiting, Princess Elizabeth accedes to the throne of England.

For many, Elizabeth's ascension is a glorious new dawn. Not so for Amy Dudley, whose ambitious husband, Sir Robert, is the acknowledged favourite of the new queen - a queen who must marry to secure her survival.

But Robert Dudley has many powerful enemies. And although she is clearly besotted with him, the virgin queen will not risk her hold on the throne.

Desire and ambition are unleashed at the court and at her home, Amy Dudley will face the ultimate betrayal.

With an exclusive afterword written and read by Philippa Gregory, exploring the inspiration behind The Virgin's Lover.
