Elizabeth, William…and Me
A novel by S. Lynn Scott
News! S. Lynn Scott, accompanied by Elizabeth I and William Shakespeare, will be reading excerpts from the novel on Saturday 5 August at Quorn Library at 11am and noon.
Ally is living an ordinary, comfortable life until Elizabeth and William come to stay. Exactly why Elizabeth Tudor should materialise in her pantry, closely followed by the Bard of Stratford on Avon, is a bit of a mystery, not to mention an inconvenience, but the crotchety Elizabeth has a mission and she is used to getting her own way…
This unstoppable trio will take the reader on a twenty-first century road trip like no other, from middle England to the cold streets of London, and to the discovery that, whilst the world might have changed in four hundred years, the characters that Shakespeare immortalised are still very much with us. Elizabeth, William and Me is a wry look at modern life through the eyes of two of history’s most luminous characters, a humorous tale of an unhappy woman teetering between imagination and reality, and a rollicking good adventure story.
“The story of Elizabeth, William and Me is funny, moving and original.
It might even be true.”
