Emerald | Karen Wallace

Emerald is Philippa Gregory for older teens. This is more substantial than the usual bodice-ripper – packed with lots of historical drama and a character that you believe in.

Set during the later years of Queen Elizabeth I reign, we have a story of intrigue, treason and of course romance.

I raced through this story. It was light-weight, but thoroughly enjoyable. The perfect read for a rainy, lazy weekend.

And it has a fanatastic cover! Wouldn’t we all love a sumptious gown like Emerald’s?

Emerald St. John is in trouble. She has been condemned to marry a man she hates, her enemies are conspiring to have her pet bear Molly torn apart in the baiting pits, and the man she loves is far away on the high seas. And she has stumbled into a web of spies with a plot to poison Queen Elizabeth I. To save herself and the kingdom, Emerald must beat the spies at their own game – which means transforming herself from a country girl into a lady of the court. Can she do it in time?
