I loved this book. I am not one to be very emotional when reading book, but I cried, laughed, and got angry with this book. There were a lot of surprises along the way. The author really made me connect with each character in a special way. I high recommend this book to anyone who is in the mood for a good read, but nothing too intense.

Readers interested in Tudor history are doubtless familiar with Lady Jane Grey, who at the tender age of 16 became Queen of England for just nine days in 1553 before her execution. However, her younger sisters, Lady Catherine and Lady Mary, are less well-known. Although their family may have fallen out of favor at court, their Tudor blood makes the girls a potential threat to Queen Mary I, who imprisons them lest her rivals use them as political pawns. Although the sisters are as different as night and day - beautiful Catherine is flirtatious and impetuous; shy, sensible Mary is sensitive about her small stature and hobbled by her deformed spine - both long for the freedom to make their own choices, even as they're forced to depend on Flemish court painter Levina Teerlinc to protect them.
