There were three Grey sisters, Lady Jane being the most famous, she who became Queen for nine days. There was Katherine, who married a couple of times, and Mary a dwarf and hunchback who relates this story. It was a pretty tough time to be a woman in the court of Henry VIII and this book portrays it well.

The Fallen Queen by Emily Purdy

Tyrannised by Bloody Mary and the Virgin Queen, Ladies Jane, Katherine and Mary Grey feared love was unthinkable. A gripping and bittersweet tale of broken families and broken hearts, courage and conviction, The Fallen Queen recounts an astonishing chapter in the hard-won battle for the Tudor throne.

Lady Jane's two sisters, Katherine and Mary, live on into Elizabeth I's reign but in family misfortune they are bound, inspiring the Queen's wrath against them. In secret, Katherine and Mary risk everything and disobey the royal order by marrying the men they love. Will their treachery be discovered? And must they face imprisonment in the Tower of London, just as their sister did before them? A stunning tale of treachery and treason, The Fallen Queen gives an unforgettable voice to three extraordinary sisters at the heart of a devastating conflict. Perfect for fans of The Tudors and Philippa Gregory's The White Queen.
