"Even a queen cannot rule over men's hearts. Mary's husband, Philip of Spain, cares nothing for his broody, besotted new wife, and the public joy with which Mary is crowned soon sours as religion splits the country. Lonely and depressed, to what lengths will she go for her faith and family - and for the heir she so desperately wants?" "Mary's tragic story is seen through the eyes of Rafael, a Spanish sundial-maker who is part of Philip of Spain's flamboyant entourage. As the once-feted queen tightens her cruel hold on the nation, Rafael becomes closer to her and his life - and newfound love - will be caught up in life the chaos that follows."--BOOK JACKET.

I wasn't sure about the ending of this book so I went on line to see if anyone out there could explain it. In the end, no one explained the ending to my satisfaction.I did enjoy this book but the comments on line were mostly bad.
