Read her diary and find out what life was `really' like for a young Tudor lady-in-waiting.'
96 pages easy to read pages, written in diary format, starting at Feb 7th 1585 and ending on Jan 15th 1592 - `Coronation Day' and culminating with a useful 8-page 'Fact File' and a 2 page description of `Court`.
The text is interspersed with charming black and white illustrations.
Rebecca Swann is only 15 years old but she still falls in love, learns to be a proper courtier, uncovers a plot against the Queen, plus much more!
Most of us thought that the book was very good, some even thought it was excellent. Only one or two didn't like it, but you can't please everyone! We would recommend the book to you, especially if you are studying the Tudors.
We have just finished reading The Diary of a Young Tudor Lady In Waiting, by Natalie Grice. It is about a poor teenager called Rebecca Swann, who leaves her home and goes to work for Queen Elizabeth 1st in London. Rebecca finds a friend, falls in love, finds out about a plot against the Queen, and saves the Queen's life. She also goes to a Frost Fair on the River Thames, watches a jousting competition, goes on a Royal Tour and gets mad at the Queen!
We would recommend that you read this book because it is really good and everybody liked it. It was interesting, funny, sad, exciting and surprising.
