Beware, Princess Elizabeth
Elizabeth's young life was an uneasy one. Her mother was beheaded by her father, and her half-sister sits on the throne. When Mary plans to marry Phillip from Spain, the English people are uneasy, which makes Elizabeth the favorite and dangerous.
While we can't truly imagine what life would have been like as Queen Elizabeth, Anne Bolyn, Mary Tudor or Catherine of Aragon, these historical fiction novels offer a well-researched picture. Each novel shares what the young life of each royal lady may have been like, intertwining historical fact with details on life in Tudor England, and realistic dialogue. You'll meet each one in a sympathetic light, as their futures are used for political purposes, as they deal with death of loved ones and disappointments of dreams that don't come true, and as they grow up to become powerful women that change the course of history. Please note that there may be some mild language and violence (executions). By Caryolyn Meyer, pb. - Jess
