This novel is both a contemporary and historical fiction based on fact that takes one on a wonderful adventure back into Elizabethan England. The theme of the story concerns the controversy of who wrote the greatest literary canon in history. Who was Shakespeare? Was he the man from stratford whom literary convention subscribes to, or was the true author subsumed behind a pseudonym fronted by the Stratford man to defray attention from an unspeakable scandal involving a prodigal high-ranking courtier and the Virgin Queen herself. The story revolves around a contemporary scholar's attempt to obtain his doctorate on this very subject. This leads him on a sometimes fantastic though dangerous mission that through an anomaly takes him back in time. Struggle against the status quo he is put into a desperate situation to save his career as his personal and professional life collide with surprising results.
