SAN FRANCISCO, CA. – THE SUN AND STARS, a mystery set in Tudor England, mixes fictional and historical characters into a plot that weaves through the dramatic events of Henry VIII’s court. Elizabeth Adair’s debut novel leans toward the cozy while deftly incorporating history. “The Sun and Stars is a fanciful mystery tale,” says Ms. Adair, “but I hope it evokes the colorful mosaic and treacherous politics of the Tudor court.”

Elizabeth Adair has written internationally published fiction and nonfiction and is a graphics designer. The Sun and Stars is her first novel. After a decade on the West Coast, Elizabeth returned to her home, the Kentucky Bluegrass, where she lives in a small town and is an advocate and worker for the aftercare of retired racehorses.

Synopsis of THE SUN AND STARS:

 Isabel Holland, illegitimate daughter of King Henry VIII, walks a privileged but precarious road through the intrigues of the Tudor court. When her cousin Sir Hugh Lovell is accused of stealing the prized crown known as the Sun and Stars and murdering its guards, Isabel pits her family loyalty against the political plotting of formidable opponents Cardinal Wolsey, Thomas Cromwell and the ruthless Lord Adam Colford. A young woman without official status, she discovers more murders and their connection to a conspiracy far more vast than a simple theft. Isabel realizes she is the only one who can save her cousin from execution and expose a plot to betray the King and the future of England.
