The woman who wrote the plays attributed to Shakespeare

Shakespeares dark lady - Amelia Bassano Lanier: the woman behind by the Shakespeares palys  John Hudson ISBN 978 1-4456-2160-9

A thought provoking book on the theory that Amelia Bassano Lanier was the author of the plays of Shakespeare. I started off unconvinced but by the end, I was very open to the idea.

Unfortunately I am not enough of a scholar of Shakespeare and his/her plays to say whether the theory is sound.  I would recommend everyone to read it.
