The year after defeating the Spanish Armada, England retaliates. The expedition to Portugal sets out to destroy what remains of Spain’s Atlantic fleet, drive the Spanish out of Portugal, put the claimant Dom Antonio of Aviz on the throne, and seize the Azores. But from the time the English fleet, led by Drake and Norreys, reaches Plymouth, things start to go wrong. Christoval Alvarez, sent to carry out two missions by Walsingham, has a more important private plan in mind. Are any members of the family still alive? And what will become of the disaster-ridden expedition?
“Ann Swinfen’s descriptions are so well-written, so richly detailed, so vivid, and the adventures so captivating, that I found myself taking my Kindle with me everywhere on the chance that I might continue reading whenever possible. The very first book inspired one of the most enthusiastic discussions we have ever had in our book circle! The third book left me in anticipatory suspense awaiting continuation of exciting events that will unfold in the fourth book.” Online Review
