    After finishing ueen's Gambit I knew that I had to read Fremantle's take on the unfortunate Grey sisters Contains historical facts that may be spoilers to someI love the fact that this story is about Katherine and Mary and their lives after the execution of their sister Jane rather than the much told story of Jane's life

    From early on in the book it was clear that there was little to keep me reading There was no plot driver or anything that made me want to finish the book Obviously Mary I was going to die and Elizabeth succeed her as ueen I should have been eager to see this happen hungry to watch the characters thrust into this politic

    The Tudors have been written about so much in the past several years that I've found myself having a desire to bypass most of them This novel was different in that it looked at the Grey girls who really have been omitted almost entirely from the Tudors history It was refreshing in a bitter sweet way to find out about the lives of these girls that were 'cursed' with Tudor blood Well written and easy to read this novel

    Find this and other reviews at was eager to get my hands on Elizabeth Fremantle's Sisters of Treason I read The ueen's Rivals last year and while I enjoyed Purdy's take on the Grey sisters the book lacked the gravitas I crave I needed something I could sink my teeth into something with a little meat on the bone if you get my meaning Fremantle caught my attention with ueen Gambit but I'll be honest I think her sopho release strong

    I will state right now that Philippa Gregory has SERIOUS competition Elizabeth Fremantle is by far the best historical fiction writer I have come across in yearsIn Sisters of Treason she tells the story of Lady Jane Grey's two younger sisters Katherine and Mary Katherine who was a serious contender as Elizabeth I's heir and Mary who suffered

    I was awarded this book by NetGalley the morning I got the approval email it had been archived and I could not download it I sent an email to the publisher they allowed me access I am SO happy they did I enjoyed this book As much as I have read about E1 and family I only knew a little of Lady Jane Grey and nothing of her

    Katherine Grey has been having a great few years lately just a bit unfortunate that this comes nearly five hundred years after she had a fairly unhappy life Given that previous to around 2011 the only reason Ladies Katherine and Mary Grey had really only clung on to the historical record as Lady Jane Grey's sisters this is uite a weather cha

Early in Mary Tudor’s turbulent reign Lady Catherine and Lady Mary Grey are reeling after the brutal execution of their elder seventeen year old sister Lady Jane Grey and the succession is by no means stable Neither sister is well suited to a dangerous life at court Flirtatious Lady Catherine thought to be the true heir cannot control her compulsion to love. The late 16th century was uite uniue in that for an extended period all potential heirs to the throne were female and it is against this backdrop that Sisters Of Treason is set It mainly focuses on three Tudor figures normally given scant regard in the history books they are Lady Katherine Grey Lady Mary Grey sisters of the deposed nine day ueen Jane and Flemish born Levina Teerlinc court painter This was a particulary uncertain period when switching allegiances among the nobility was common if only to maintain self preservation and ensure you didn t meet your fate with the scaffold Although this is a work of fiction the author has based it on historical facts and she has caught perfectly the workings of both the inner court through Lady Katherine and Lady Mary and the outsider s perspective through the eyes of Levina Teerlinc earning her living as portrait painter to the nobility something which at that time as a female defied convention The politics of the Tudor reign have been brought vividly to life capturing the dangers dramas and intrigue but also by focusing on specific lives we see a intimate and personal side to them This was an exciting read and kept me gripped right the way through The author has breathed life into these little known characters and has them reaching out from the pages so that you can t help but get to know and care about them I think it unfair to compare authors so I won t but what I will say is Elizabeth Fremantle is sure to become highly regarded in her genre and her books will be greeted with great anticipation

REVIEW Sisters of Treason

Sisters of Treason

And be loved Her sister clever Lady Mary has a crooked spine and a tiny stature in an age when physical perfection euates to goodness and both girls have inherited the Tudor blood that is curse than blessing For either girl to marry without royal permission would be a potentially fatal political act It is the royal portrait painter Levina Teerlinc who helps. Made it just over 100 pages in 111 to be exact There s just no narrative to this There are 3 POVs Katharine a whiny self involved girl who goes from crying over a boy to suddenly a lesbian bisexual Mary a younger girl who is either lamenting her deformity or being treated like a baby by the ueen and Lavinia an artist who just talks about hiding how she s not a Catholic None of the POVs are engaging and I don t care about any of the characters The best historical fictions find the story within the past and make it come alive but this is just sadly putting me to sleep
