Under the shadow of the Axe
Together they ruled England for only 9 days
In 1553, England's idle rich were anything but idle. With the blessing of the royal family, they plundered the riches of the church, stole the finest farmlands, and generally took all of the best things the country had to offer.
A cousin to the infamous Henry the VIII, Lady Jane Grey disapproved of the way her fellow nobles behaved, and disagreed with their religious beliefs. But as a sheltered sixteen year old, there wasn't much she could do about it.
Then, through a strange turn of events, Lady Jane Grey was crowned Queen Jane, ruler of all England. Based on a true story of the girl who found herself Queen of England for nine days at the age 16, Lady Jane is historical romance at its bittersweet best.
