The Fallen Queen by Emily Purdy (The Queen's Rivals by Brandy Purdy in the USA) was released in the UK today with this beautiful cover. 

From the back cover:

Led by love into the jaws of fate….

Lady Jane Grey is crowned Queen at the behest of Edward VI. Her reign lasts only nine days before she is executed for treason.

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.

This sounds like it will be a most interesting book. I read the story of Lady Jane Grey several years ago. What a sad story. Such a young girl to be used by her family in such a way and to pay such a high price. One must wonder if she believed it would really happen until the very last.

Best of luck with the release. I hope it does very well.
