Product Description

Mary Tudor and Elizabeth Tudor race for the English Crown. Bloodshed and betrayal is on the way…

Two princesses are born seventeen years apart to the same father – but different mothers. Their father, King Henry VIII, swears that no woman shall ever wear the English crown. But when their brother, Edward, dies naming another woman as his successor, the two women take action – in opposing ways.

Forced by her father and brother to publicly renounce her beloved religion, Mary Tudor has a heavy cross to bear. Determined to restore England to the true Church, she decides to take matters into her own hands.

Bright, beautiful and beloved at court, Elizabeth decides to lie low when Lady Jane Grey is declared Queen. But must she lie even lower if Mary gets her way?

One great conflict. Two great stories.
