Synopsis

Nine Day Queen The Story of Lady Jane Grey's Nine-day Rule by Ella March Chase

Shy and scholarly Lady Jane Grey is happier in the company of her sisters, than with the intrigues of court. But as fourth in line to Henry's throne, Jane is too valuable a pawn not to be played.

Reviews

'That Lady Jane Grey had two tragic sisters is one of the neglected stories of the Elizabethan age. High praise to Ella March Chase, who knows her Tudor history, for putting this fascinating and doomed trio at the centre of an ingenious work of fiction' G.J. MEYER, author of THE TUDORS

'Thanks to the skilled craftmanship of Ella March Chase, the three Grey sisters come vividly to life... an intimate portrait of their struggle in the hostile environment of the Tudor court - a world brilliantly recreated in this thoroughly engrossing novel' KATE EMERSON

About the Author

When Ella March Chase was in school, she informed her teacher she didn't need to learn multiplication tables because she was going to be a famous writer when she grew up. At twenty-five, she combined her passion for researchinghistory and spinning stories. Her daughter Kate claims even the family dogs were discovered while researching King Charles II - Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. When travelling to England she fell under the spell of the Tower of London - the infamous Traitor's Gate, the chapel where beheaded queens lay buried, the story of the two princes allegedly murdered by Richard III. Ella began unearthing the obscure historical details that make larger than life figures painfully human. From that fascination, the concepts for The Virgin Queen's Daughter and The Reluctant Queen emerged.
