1593: Elizabethan London seethes with political and religious intrigue, while across the sea thousands perish in the flames of the Spanish Inquisition. On the surface, Roderigo Lopez, the Queen's physician, is loyal subject of the Crown but secretly he and his family are Jewish conversos, hiding their illegal religion while smuggling ashore Portuguese refugees fleeing from persecution.

Rebecca, Roderigo's headstrong daughter, is torn between her duty to her father - which includes marriage to a converso she does not love - and her fascination with the heady world of Elizabethan London she knows lies beyond her door. Slipping out of her household one night, disguised as a man, Rebecca stumbles into a swordfight with someone equally romantic and heedless: Will Shakespeare, an ambitious young dramatist who, like Rebecca, has secrets to conceal and mysteries to unravel. Together, they embark on an adventure that plunges them into the sinks and stews of Elizabethan England - and into the course of history itself. . .
