Really good read. Poor Lady Jane. Did give me my Tudors fix! I'm obsessed! Good timing in finishing this book, as a sweepstake has just closed and the winer loves Tudor Historical Fiction also :) It would be intresting to read a book that sheds more light on the life of her sisters, Katherine and Mary. Another book I read about the Grey family had a much more loving attitude towards Mary and made Katherine to be somewhat of a slut. This book is very different about them. Only troublke with historal fiction as we will never know which one is correct *le sigh*

I love Alison Wier's The Lady Elizabeth so it will be interesting to read her take on the life of Lady Jane Grey. Thank you very much for the book I'm looking forward to reading it!

Hope you enjoy your book

p.s. Don't worry about the second copy I'll journal both once I've read it and then pass them on. I think I know just the reader too!

*SPOILERS*

Alison Weir for me is one of the masters of historical fiction. I love the changes in viewpoint that move the story along showing the most important parts at the time. I know quite a bit about Lady Jane Grey's later life however I know little about her childhood so it was really interesting to read about that. I particularly enjoyed reading about Elizabeth from a supposed different point of view. You have to applaud Lady Jane for her courage and not taking the easiest route rather following her religious viewpoint to the end even if it resulted in her execution. To an extent I feel sorry for Mary I as it must have been very difficult to make the decision and you do feel through Weir's writing that the decision was not taken lightly.

Again though you get to see how difficult it was to be a child or a young woman in Tudor times being used as a pawn for your parental advantage. I actually found myself wanting to scream at the book in parts that these people should just leave well alone and be happy with their lot. However many of the books that you read in these precarious times of religious upheaval you see people flipping sides and changing solely to their advantage. It was nice to see that Jane Grey remained constant in her allegience to her religion and not wanting advancement.

Thank you very much again for sending the book to me I very much enjoyed it.

From Flossie's Shrinking Bookbox

I have been interested in this period of England's history. There was so much intrigue going on behind the scenes. Lady Jane Grey has always seemed such a tragic figure. I look forward to reading this novel.
