The book is a well researched and interesting account of Francis Bacon's extraordinary life which hints at his being the writer of the Shakespeare plays.

However it excludes what many believe to be the real reason for Bacon's choice of Wm Shakespeare as a mask to conceal Bacon's authorship.

Gerald by Du Maurier, Daphne

This is that Bacon was the concealed first born son of Elizabeth 1st and her heir apparent. There is also no mention of the secret codes which run through the plays by which Bacon reveals his identity and biography for future generations to discover. Since the publication of The Winding Stair a good deal more information is available and the Shakespeare authorship debate is increasingly a hot topic.

The new novel -The Royal Secret- now available on Amazon in print- reveals a great deal more of the drama of Bacon's life and the reasons why he is the most likely candidate for the Shakespeare authorship, and perhaps deserves to be known as the most important man in both UK and US history.

Daphne du Maurier did her homework. This work did not disappoint. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a well written biography of Sir Francis, his rise and fall. This book is excellent and deals with the trials and tribulations and defamation the ever wondrous, totally brilliant and world influencing Francis Bacon had to endure in a world that didn't understand and appreciation his many talents, deep thinking and generous spirit.

Yes, the novelist who gave us Hitchcock's "Jamaica Inn," "Rebecca," and "The Birds," was also a historian, especially anything that had to do with her own family and her own "country," southwest England. It begins with Francis at age 40, on the death of his brother. The title comes from the quote that one's ascent in life is like a winding stair, taking one step at a time. Easy to read, and fills in the gaps of Francis Bacon's life.

But the best part of this is the fact that it was written by a celebrity in her own right:
