Kathryn Z. said:
Alison Weir examines the unexpected rise and tragic fall of Lady Jane Grey in this carefully crafted and touching historical novel. Although the ultimate fate of Lady Jane is well-known, the author creates real suspense for the reader by detailing the various plots leading to Jane's reluctant reign as Queen of England when she was just sixteen years old.
