"The Gentleman Poet is the best kind of historical novel--well researched, beautifully written, and wildly entertaining."
--Daniel Stashower, author of The Beautiful Cigar Girl

The Gentleman Poet , author Kathryn Johnson's novel of love, danger, and Shakespeare's The Tempest, is a wonderful story that imagines a series of astonishing events that just might have inspired the immortal Bard to pen his magical tale. Told from the point of view of a young servant girl who strikes up a friendship with the not yet famous playwright when they are shipwrecked in the Bermudas, The Gentleman Poet gives a delightful new spin on Shakespearean lore reminiscent of the Academy Award-winning film, Shakespeare in Love.
