Product Description

Product Description

The Tower of London is the greatest castle in England. It is a palace and a fortress, but also a prison. And tomorrow, a former Queen will be executed there: Lady Jane Grey, Queen for just nine days, sentenced to a traitor's death at the age of sixteen. Many say she does not deserve to die, but the Bloody Tower will have no mercy on her...

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book from the My Story series. 20 Jan 2005
Tilly Middleton is thirteen years old in the spring of 1553, when she begins her diary. She and her family live at the Tower of London, where her father is the physician. She describes her life at home, doing chores and helping care for her younger siblings, as well as the events of the day in England. It is a time of great turmoil, as the young king, Edward, dies, and his Catholic half-sister, Mary, becomes Queen of England. During Mary's reign, many people are kept at the tower as prisoners, including Mary's Protestant half-sister, Elizabeth.
I enjoyed this book from the My Story series a lot, as I particularly like this time period, but the book covered a long time period, and as a result, the later half contained a lot less detail than I would have liked, so I wish it were longer. However, I still recommend it to readers who enjoy historical fiction in diary format or who have an interest in this time period.

5.0 out of 5 stars My class are really enjoying the diary extracts. 27 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great historical diary entries. It is necessary to read ahead though to ensure all bits are suitable for the reader, especially if it is being used by KS2.
