452 pages; Spine tail bumped, a very nice copy indeed. Unclipped dust wrapper faintly edgeworn.; "It is 1587 and the Spanish are planning to launch their Holy Enterprise of England - to rescue the English from heresy and to kill Elizabeth, their Witch-Queen. This brilliant re-working of the Armada story takes us into the heart of the battle and shows how different England's history could have been had the Spanish landed on its shores. It is a tale of love, courage and ultimately, redemption." ; This adventure story (Ruth Rendell calls Finney the le Carre of the sixteenth century") is rather graphic at times especially when depicting life on board ship as a galley slave. This author recommended by Diana Gabaldon. Published @24.95.
