Publisher's Summary

From the storytelling magic of Barbara Taylor Bradford comes a modern retelling of the drama and intrigue surrounding the 16th-century Queen Elizabeth.

Instead of England, the throne is the business empire of the Deravenels. And this Elizabeth is the most powerful managing director in its history. Surrounded by rumors and betrayal, Elizabeth Deravenel must steer her company clear of takeovers, and at the same time keep her heart from being broken as scandal surrounds the one man she's ever loved.

It's Barbara Taylor Bradford at her very best.

Not much "substance"

If you're looking for the Barbara Taylor Bradford of "A Woman of Substance", you won't find her here. "Being Elizabeth" doesn't have the same character development or passion as previous novels. It was just OK. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen, but it never did.

loved it

I loved the series but this was a little slower than book one. Over all I did NOT like the way murders kept happening but the story never finished with who or why. I hate that. I want to know who-done-It!!!

Little disappointing after first two books

Really enjoyed first two books in the series. This third book seem to miss the boat. Redundancy in some places, gaps in others. Kind of hard to follow at times. In the performance it was hard to distinguish the difference between voices, especially Elizabeth and Robert.
