Description
Following biographies of Henry VIII, his six wives, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Elizabeth I, Britain's most popular female historian here gives us her first historical novel, a portrait of a captivating young noblewoman who was England's monarch for nine days before she was ensnared in the Tudor battles for succession. "I am now a condemned traitor ... I am to die when I have hardly begun to live," ponders Lady Jane Grey from her cell in the Tower of London. Raised by an ambitious father and a ruthless mother, Jane at 15 was an exceptionally intelligent and unabashedly honest young woman who preferred her books to the halls of power. Scarcely a month after her marriage to Lord Guildford Dudley, however, she was named by her cousin King Edward VI as his successor to the throne—even as her cousin Mary I, "Bloody Mary," assembled an army to depose her. Alison Weir gives us a poignant drama of a remarkable young woman, regarded for centuries as a martyr to England's dynastic infighting.

"In her first work of fiction ... Weir manages her heroine's voice brilliantly, respecting the past's distance while conjuring a dignified and fiercely modern spirit."—Daily Mail (London)
