About the Author
David Elias is a novelist based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His work has been nominated for several awards, and he has travelled extensively in the footsteps of Elizabeth of Bohemia to examine rare historical documents and artifacts in places such as the British Library, Heidelberg Castle, and St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague.

"Elias' use of language to re-create the period is striking . . . A highly readable telling of a royal fall from grace." -- Kirkus Reviews

"[A] well-researched, extremely fluid novel deserving of librarian attention for inclusion in all active historical-fiction collections. Elizabeth emerges from these colorful pages as a woman of great strength . . . Greatly sensitive to readers' needs and interests, Elias weaves together greater-picture details of European history and personal notes relevant to Elizabeth Stuart's desires and setbacks to produce a solid, resonant depiction of a woman who made the best of trying circumstances." -- Booklist

"Lively and engrossing . . . Despite her beauty and sharp mind, Elizabeth is limited by regal obligations and her gender, and her inner conflicts are well-defined . . . Rich with historical detail and political intrigue, Elizabeth of Bohemia is a complex portrait of a reluctant yet captivating queen." -- Foreword Reviews

"This sweeping novel explores the life of a lesser-known historical figure whose descendants would go on to become kings and queens of Britain." -- Book Riot

"A wonderfully scripted and entertaining read from cover to cover, Elizabeth of Bohemia is certain to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to community library Historical Fiction collections." -- Midwest Book Review
