A Murder for Her Majesty by Beth Hilgartner (1986)

majesty.jpgAlice is on the run!  Her father has just been murdered and she has no where to go and no idea who she can trust.  She’s pretty sure her father’s killers were sent by Queen Elizabeth I.  Can she find safety by pretending to be a choirboy at the Yorkshire Cathedral?

And what happens when the murders show up at that cathedral too?

Your heart will be racing until you read the very last page of A Murder for Her Majesty — and you will have learned a whole lot about Elizabeth the First and the Protestant Reformation!
