Review quote

"Jane Grey was one of the most remarkable young people in English history. Not only was she frighteningly bright but she stood up for herself in an age when girls were meant to be submissive. Most of all, despite being all alone, she defended her Christian beliefs vigorously and refused to abandon her faith in Jesus Christ, even though she knew that would mean she would be beheaded." -- Eric Ives, Emeritus Professor of English History at the University of Birmingham, and author of the definitive study Lady Jane Grey: A Tudor Mystery.
