The Secret Life of Elizabeth (Ely) Trentham, the woman was Shakespeare, is revealed. From Ely’s childhood to the ten years she served as maid of honor to Queen Elizabeth I, to her marriage to Edward deVere, the Seventeenth Earl of Oxford why they hired William Shaksper to take credit for their plays.

Interwoven is the modern story of Cynthia Parsons, a history teacher who searches for evidence to prove Ely and Edward were writing partners. Having found the evidence she seeks, there are those who will use any means to keep her from revealing the truth.
