    I’ve always been interested in William Cecil, Elisabeth’s chief minister, and I wonder if you’ve read any books about him that you can recommend?

      Hi Lina,
      Stephen Alford wrote “Burghley: William Cecil at the Court of Elizabeth I”. I haven’t read it and it has mixed reviews, people saying it’s a bit repetitive, but Alford’s book “The Watchers” was excellent and based on that I would say that this book would be very well researched and written.

    Are any books available about the Howard family, I have one about Thomas Howard, Duke of Nofolk, however I’ve been unable to find one on the Howard’s as a whole? Thanks!
