Summary

'Good people, I am come hither to die and by a law I am condemned to the same.' These were the words uttered by 17-year-old Lady Jane Grey as she stood on the scaffold on a cold February morning in 1554. Forced on to the throne by power players at court, Queen Jane reigned for just 13 days before being imprisoned in the tower, condemned for high treason and executed.

In this dramatic retelling of an often misread tale, historian Nicola Tallis explores evidence that has never been before used in a biography to sweep away the myths and reveal the moving story of an intelligent, independent and courageous young woman

Critic reviews

"A stunning debut...vivid, colourful, pacy and evocative." (Alison Weir)

Absorbing and well read episode of Tudor history.

An enjoyable listen of what I believe is the author's debut work. This is an episode in English history that I knew only sketchily, and I feel the story was told here in a clear and easy to understand manner. Very well read - it kept me absorbed throughout and I would recommend it to anyone who loves history.

Dull

Monotone, dreary, like a history text book, can't be bothered to finish it and love this period in history
