Description

Praise for Susan Higginbotham's Novels "Susan Higginbotham transports her readers into a vividly portrayed past."--Helen Hollick, author of The Pendragon's Banner trilogy A daughter can be a dangerous weapon in the battle for the throne of England Frances Grey harbored no dream of her children taking the throne. Cousin of the king, she knew the pitfalls of royalty and privilege. Better to marry them off, marry them well, perhaps to a clan like the Dudleys. Jane Dudley knew her husband was creeping closer to the throne, but someone had to take charge, for the good of the country. She couldn't see the twisted path they all would follow. The never-before-told story of the women behind the crowning of Jane Grey, this novel is a captivating peek at ambition gone awry, and the damage left in its wake. "Susan Higginbotham draws the reader under her spell...she brings the dead to life."--Christy English, author of The Queen's Pawn, praise for The Stolen Crown "A beautiful blending of turbulent history and deeply felt fiction...Higginbotham has given readers of historical fiction a gift to treasure."--Karen Harper, New York Times bestselling author of The Irish Princess, praise for The Queen of Last Hopesshow more

Review quote

"Along with historical accuracy, a swift-moving plot and little family details that any mother would remember and treasure, such as Lady Dudley's talking parrot and Lady Grey's dismay at her daughter's surprising lack of common sense, the novel includes characterizations at which this author excels. She takes the infamous villains of history and presents them as relatable human characters. This book at times made me smile and then cry with the tragedy. I very much recommend it." - Historical Novels Reviewshow more
