Three sisters. A family of secrets -- and tragedy. Jane Grey was queen of England for nine days. Crowned instead of the dead king's half-sister Mary Tudor, who mustered an army, claimed her throne, and locked Jane in the Tower of London, and sent her to the executioner's block. Her younger sister Katherine is heir to the insecure and infertile Queen Mary and then to her sister Queen Elizabeth, but is imprisoned when her secret marriage is discovered. The youngest Grey sister, Mary, is a beautiful dwarf, disregarded by the court and acutely aware of the danger. What will happen when the last Tudor defies her ruthless and unforgiving cousin Queen Elizabeth?

This book was a slog. I kept reading purely because I was interested in how the events played out. I didn't previously know anything about the sisters of Jane Grey, so it was this that kept me reading. Otherwise, I'm sure I would have given it away. The author herself says this is the last of the Tudor books she will write and she has a new series planned. This was evident in the writing. It felt like she was going through the motions, the passion and intrigue found in others of the Tudor series was lacking.

I hate to say this about this author but the details of the first 6 chapters got to me. It was almost all rambling. I lost interest and tried everything to get thru it. If a book doesn t get to me within the first few chapters after trying over 4 times I give up.
