1554: Lady Jane Grey is executed by her cousin Queen Mary…
Now Lady Jane’s younger sisters Katherine and Mary, cursed with the Tudor blood that saw their sister killed, face the perils of the royal court alone.
Lady Katherine – young and spirited – makes dangerous romantic liaisons. While Lady Mary – crook-backed and vulnerable – becomes the Queen’s reluctant companion, yet yearns to escape court intrigue. And both girls fear their proximity to the Queen might be their undoing.
For the childless Queen is ill. If she should die Katherine may be pushed to power, but the Queen’s half-sister Elizabeth casts a long shadow and if she gains the throne the court will become a terrifying maze of treachery and suspicion – where holding royal blood could be a death warrant for the two sisters…

This book is right up my alley – I am very interested in the story of Jane Grey, and I am sure her sisters’ stories are just as interesting. I haven’t read this author’s work yet, although Queen’s Gambit is on my bookshelf in my “to read” section!
Thanks so much for the giveaway!
I would love to read this book because I’m fascinated by anything to do with the Grey sisters.
I would love a copy of this book, because I haven’t found a good book about the Grey sisters yet. Everything seems to be about Lady Katherine and her sex life, which is fine, but there has to be more to her, and her sister, than that. I’m a huge Tudor & Anne Boleyn fan, and would like to branch out a bit more, while staying within the Tudor period. Love your page, Claire! Hoping to join the Tudor Society soon!
Oh yes, this book sounds fantastic. I have been intrigued with anything to do with the Tudors since being a teenager. This book would be a welcome addition to my Tudor library!
Would love a copy of this. There is not enough informative info on the Grey sisters.
I would love to read about the sister’s of Lady Jane.
I have read about the sisters before and would love the chance to gain more insight into their lives.
I would love to read this book!!!
I would love to while away my winter doldrums reading about the Grey Sisters, they are portrayed as villains so often just because of their birth but they always seemed to me to be victims of their time as was Anne Boleyn…. such a pity one can never KNOW the truth of the women circumstances of that era…. They women of that time seem to have such impact upon history yet so much remains shrouded in mystery..
I want to add this to my library of Tudor themed books. It sounds great!
This book sounds like a great read would love this.
I’m excited about reading about Lady Jane Grey, I already have a library of Tudor books and this would beautifully add to it
Would you consider giving the book to an American in her 50’s? I am somewhat new to my love of history and of the Tutors. I started taking a real interest only about 8 years ago and mourn the time lost that I could have been enjoying these fascinating stories, but now I can’t get enough of them.
I am an avid fan of British history, particularly the women, of whom most of us Americans know very little. I would love to have a vote of this book about the Grey sisters.
Congratulations Susan, you’ve won the book!
Grey? they sound very colourful characters to me – would love to read more about them.

would love to have this book to add to my collection of the tudor history that I am so interested in
History brought alive by the scholarly historical fiction is my favorite genre to read. Of course, the story of Lady Jane Grey and her sisters sounds like it sheds light on formerly minor characters. I would love to read this book.
I love everything that is Tudor! I am completely intrigued with all the history that comes alive when you read any book, in particular Tudor history books! To date I have not read a great deal about Lady Jane Grey or her family and I would love to add this new book, Sisters of Treason to my collection.
It sounds like a terrific read!
I, of course, love all thing Tudor! I read Elizabeth Fremantle’s first book The Queen’s Gambit and loved it!
I’d like to read this book because I’m interested in the Grey sisters, although I don’t know much about them. I especially find Elizabeth I’s harsh treatment of them interesting.
I read the first chapter s an Amazon sample and was thrilled to read a sympathic Frances Grey and not a harsh momma-monster.
I would love to read this book as I’m always on the lookout for new Tudor books and this one with a focus on the Greys sounds very interesting!
I think my opinion of Frances Grey may be rather low so if I could possibly get another perspective on her I would find this an interesting read.
I have long been intrigued by the story of the Grey sisters and so would love to read this book.
This book is right up my alley, and I would LOVE to read it. I just finished several books about Lady Jane Grey and her sisters, Lady Katherine and Lady Mary. This one would be an excellent addition to my slowly growing Tudor library.
i know very little about Jane’s other sisters and I would love to read this book.
Would love to learn more about the Grey sisters from an objective point of view, as opposed to through the eyes of Mary and Elizabeth, as we often hear about them.
Congratulations to Susan Lutz for winning the giveaway.
