Read full description of the books Unicorn's Blood:By the author of Firedrake's Eye: a masterpiece of voice, historical detail, and psychological insight to rival Peter Ackroyd and A. S. Byatt
England in the mid-1580s faced an array of international foes and was torn internally by religious strife. At its center was a slight woman of exceptional intellectual brilliance. Her stature approached that of a deity -- Queen Elizabeth I, the Virgin Queen. But this icon was more than a reflection of the Queen's personal charisma, it was a political creation, designed to hold a fractious people together.
Unicorn's Blood is about a dangerous secret, the existence of a private diary kept by the Queen as a young princess. Should this stolen journal, embroidered with a unicorn that has a ruby for an eye, fall into the wrong hands, its intimate revelations would destroy the entire edifice of Tudor government.

While she was still in her first year her book won the David Higham Award for Best First Novel of the year and some fantastic reviews. By then she was also an established broadcast dramatist, gaining particular acclaim with the BBC Radio 3's production of her play The Flood. Patricia's second novel, The Crow Goddess, followed within a year to further acclaim.
Patricia Finney latest book for children, Jack and the Ghosts, is due out shortly, published by HarperCollins in the USA and Transworld in the UK. As well as another award-winning radio play ("A Room Full of Mirrors"), she has published fifteen other novels, including three Elizabethan spy thrillers and four Elizabethan crime novels, four childrens' books set in Elizabethan times and the two earlier Jack books - hilarious stories about Jack the daffy (present-day) Labrador dog and his Pack, written in Doglish.
