Whitelock, Anna  
The Queen's Bed (original title: Elizabeth's Bedfellows)
For over forty years, Queen Elizabeth's bedchamber was the heart of court.

These women were her friends, confidantes, and spies. Historian Whitelock offers a revealing look at the Elizabethan court, reconstructing the Queen's quarters and the women who patrolled them, weaving a tale of sex, gossip, conspiracy, and intrigue.
