Sisters of Treason
by Elizabeth Fremantle
Following the acclaimed Queen’s Gambit, Elizabeth Fremantle brings us a new novel of intrigue and menace at the Tudor Court…1554: Lady Jane Grey is executed by her cousin Queen Mary…Now Lady Jane’s younger sisters Katherine and Mary, cursed with the Tudor blood that saw their sister killed, face the perils of the royal court alone.
Lady Katherine – young and spirited – makes dangerous romantic liaisons. While Lady Mary – crook-backed and vulnerable – becomes the Queen’s reluctant companion, yet yearns to escape court intrigue. And both girls fear their proximity to the Queen might be their undoing.
For the childless Queen is ill. If she should die Katherine may be pushed to power, but the Queen’s half-sister Elizabeth casts a long shadow and if she gains the throne the court will become a terrifying maze of treachery and suspicion – where holding royal blood could be a death warrant for the two sisters…
Look forward to seeing you there and thank you for signing up – it’s great to have you on board!
