Summary (From the publisher):

Set against the glittering courts of sixteenth-century Europe, the Spain of the dreaded Inquisition, and the tortured England of Bloody Mary, this powerful novel traces the story of Philip II -- and of the women who came to know this man as a devoted father and sensual lover, but whom history lists as a cold-blooded monster.

Philip has remained a mysterious character through the centuries. Some see him as a tyrant, a murderer, a fanatic who reveled in the sufferings he witnessed at the autos-da-fé which took place in his native country and which enjoyed his wholehearted support. To others he is the devout Catholic, the founder of that monastic palace the Escorial, and a man whose harsh deeds were all committed in the cause of duty and self-sacrifice.
