En el año 1558, los conflictos religiosos que sacuden Kingsbridge se han convertido en un obstáculo insuperable para el amor entre Ned Willard y Margery Fitzgerald. Cuando Isabel I llega al trono, toda Europa se vuelve en contra de Inglaterra y la joven monarca decide crear el primer servicio secreto, cuya misión es advertirla de posibles intrigas e invasiones. A lo largo de medio siglo turbulento, Ned luchará por conseguir a Margery mientras lidera este reducido y entregado grupo de valerosos agentes secretos, que se convertirán en el fundamento del poder de la reina-- y en materia de un thriller histórico de espionaje.
In 1558, the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, royalty and commoners clash, testing friendship, loyalty, and love. Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious conflict dividing the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country's first secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents.
