A Heavy Burden to Bear - by Emmy CulleyPart 2 of an epic Tudor trilogy by Emmy CulleyLondon 1578... and Queen Elizabeth is in mortal danger. Having silenced the pirate queen, Sushana Culley, she underestimates the vengeful heart of her son, Patrick, and is unaware of his alliance with her arch-enemy, Grace O'Malley, as together they assemble the largest pirate militia in history. This rip-roaring tale of intrigue and revenge, of treachery and betrayal, of love and lust, of brutality and torture will horrify and revolt the most hardened of readers, so be warned...The story begins when a blacksmith and a hunchback are thrown together at a public execution. Follow them back and forth as their adventures draw steadily ever closer the main protagonists. Follow the Queen, too, as this titan of the diplomatic world dominates the international stage and rules her own country with a rod of iron... but glimpse also her submission to sexual humiliation and her pangs of betrayal.The story spans the Atlantic - from the west of England to the west of Ireland, from Bristol to Brazil, from Lundy to London. All of Tudor life is here. See, in remarkable detail, the brilliance of Elizabeth's Court and the abject poverty of most ordinary folk. Witness murder, kidnap, battles on the high seas, torture, execution and pure unadulterated lust.But, most important, be there at the end... when all is revealed... and then wait eagerly for the final part of the trilogy, 'Heavy Seas to Hades'.
