Here is a better quality image of the cover for the British edition of my next novel, due out in June 2011. It will be called Mary & Elizabeth by Emily Purdy in the UK and The Tudor Throne by Brandy Purdy in the USA.
MARY & ELIZABETH by Emily Purdy
This is the UK Edition of The Tudor Throne by Brandy Purdy
Two Sisters, United by Blood, divided by the Crown.
They shared childhood memories and one grand ambition.
Mary was England's precious jewel, the surviving child of the tumultuous relationship between Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon. However, when Henry fell passionately in love with the dark-eyed Anne Boleyn, he cast his wife and daughter aside.
Henry and Anne's union divides the country, and with the birth of Elizabeth, Mary becomes a pariah, stripped of all royal privileges. Yet, there is something enchanting about Elizabeth, and Mary soon grows to love her like a sister.
But every rose has its thorn, and following Anne Boleyn's execution, a rift begins to grow between the sisters. Mary assumes her place as queen, her reign of terror turning the people's love to hate. Elizabeth, whose true love is her country, must defy her tyrannical sister to make way for a new era...
Mary and Elizabeth is a rip-roaring story of a love, power, and rivalry that will delight fans of The Tudors.
