Just In

Dark Aemilia

By O'Reilly, Sally

Book

Elizabethan London comes alive in this richly atmospheric novel about Shakespare's "Dark Lady."  Aemilia Bassano, once favored by the queen, is now on the edge of disaster.  Barely surviving a miserable marriage and fearing exposure to the plague, Aemilia must turn to her estranged lover, William Shakespeare, in order to save her son.  Kirkus Reviews calls O'Reilly's American debut a "gripping novel with a fesisty feminine voice."
