Summary
Examines the life of Lady Jane Grey while offering insight into the parallel experiences of her sisters and the broader Grey family, detailing Jane's short reign and the royal bloodline that exposed all three to the enmity of Elizabeth I
Summary
Mary, Katherine and Jane Grey--sisters whose mere existence nearly toppled a kingdom and altered a nation's destiny are three women, who were victimized by the vicious Tudor power struggle and whose heirs would otherwise probably be ruling England today. Exploding the many myths of Lady Jane Grey's life, unearthing the details of Katherine's and Mary's dramatic stories, and casting new light on Elizabeth's reign, the author gives voice and resonance to the lives of the Greys and offers perspective on their place in history and on a time when a royal marraige could gain a woman a kingdom or cost her everything
