This review is from: The Sisters Who Would Be Queen: The Tragedy of Mary, Katherine & Lady Jane Grey: The Tragedy of Mary, Katherine and Lady Jane Grey (Hardcover)
A wonderful account of the Grey sisters and their exciting and often dangerous lives. De Lisle focuses on each sister in turn, with attention to detail and in depth understanding.
De Lisle spends some time discussing Lady Jane Grey but her main focus is Lady Mary and Katherine. This is where she shines. The least famous sisters are given the limelight they rightly deserve! De Lisle gives detailed accounts and her own views when history records cannot, in a sympathetic and rational manner.
The book is very readable and I would recommend it to anyone interested in the Tudor period.
