Review

Praise for Alison Weir
Queen Isabella
" Compelling, gripping and believable . . . a highly readable tour de force that brings Queen Isabella vividly to life."
- The Washington Post Book World
" Insightful . . . the acclaimed Weir offers well-researched surprise after surprise about the sensual, rather avaricious but eminently admirable Isabella."
- USA Today
Mary, Queen of Scots, and the Murder of Lord Darnley
" The finest historian of English monarchical succession writing now is Alison Weir. . . . Her assiduousness and informed judgment are precisely what make her a writer to trust."
- The Boston Globe

Eleanor of Aquitaine
" Extraordinary . . . exhilarating in its color, ambition, and human warmth. The author exhibits a breathtaking grasp of the physical and cultural context of Queen Eleanor' s life."
- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
" Evocative . . . a rich tapestry of a bygone age and a judicious assessment of her subject' s place within it."
- Newsday

"From the Hardcover edition."

Book Description

The Sunday Times Top Ten bestselling debut novel from one of Britain's most successful popular historians

Product Description

Alison Weir, our pre-eminent popular historian, has now fulfilled a life's ambition to write historical fiction. She has chosen as her subject the bravest, most sympathetic and wronged heroine of Tudor England, Lady Jane Grey.



Lady Jane Grey was born into times of extreme danger. Child of a scheming father and a ruthless mother, for whom she was merely a pawn in a dynastic power game with the highest stakes, she lived a life in thrall to political machinations and lethal religious fervour.



Jane's astonishing and essentially tragic story was played out during one of the most momentous periods of English history. As a great-niece of Henry VIII, and the cousin of Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I, she grew up to realize that she could never throw off the chains of her destiny. Her honesty, intelligence and strength of character carry the reader through all the vicious twists of Tudor power politics, to her nine-day reign and its unbearably poignant conclusion.
