The Lady Elizabeth: A Novel

The Lady Elizabeth - Alison Weir A novel, but written within the framework of historical facts, it deals with that tendency to fill in the gaps, to imagine actual conversations and backstory when the facts run dry, or are incomplete. Follows Elizabeth 1st's life until ascending the throne, including all the intrigue and uncertainties that exist in her childhood & adolescence. Written by a historian, so the framework is thoroughly researched and it's not at all easy to spot the joins between truth & fiction - and that make it so successful, this could well be what happened, but we'll never actually know...
