Fire queen

Courtney, Joanna, (Novelist)2020
Large Print
Shakespeare's Ophelia was a lover, a madwoman and a victim. The real Ofelia is a very different story: a leader, a fighter and a fiercely independent woman. As a young girl, Ofelia stood frozen as her mother threw herself on her father's funeral pyre. Such is the fate, she learned, of the devoted wife and in that moment, she swore never to belong to any man. Years later, she is a force to be reckoned with: right hand woman to the newly crowned Prince Hamlet, to whom she has sworn her sword and her undying loyalty, but refuses his true desire - her hand in marriage. When Hamlet's jealous uncle plots against him, Ofelia will have to use every wile at her disposal to keep her prince safe from those who wish him harm. Yet in the end, it could be her unruly heart that is the greatest betrayer of all.
