Summary
Aemilia Lanyer, the daughter of a Venetian musician and a former favorite at Queen Elizabeth's court, begs for help from her former lover, William Shakespeare, when her son falls ill with the plague
Summary
The daughter of a Venetian musician, Aemilia Bassano grows up amid the splendor of Queen Elizabeth's court, eventually becoming the mistress of an elderly lord and the lover of a young playwright named Will Shakespeare. Once she becomes pregnant, however, she falls from favor and is hastily married off to a courtier. Forgotten but not gone, Aemilia risks what little remains to her when she approaches Shakespeare, her former paramour, with a single request: help her save their child. Inspired by the life and career of Aemilia Lanyer, England's first woman poet, this novel proposes an intriguing possible identity for the "dark lady" of Shakespeare's sonnets. -- Description by Gillian Speace
