Summary
"SISTERS OF TREASON, the second novel by Elizabeth Fremantle, is a story of love, politics and tragedy. Beginning early in Mary Tudor's turbulent reign, SISTERS OF TREASON explores the lives of a pair of sisters as dangerously close to the throne as their sister Lady Jane Grey, who died on the executioner's block at the age of 16, after being queen for nine days. After Jane's death, Lady Catherine becomes the focus of plots to thwart Mary Stuart's claim on England's throne. Catherine is a young woman driven by a compulsive and ultimately fatal desire to love and be loved. Clever Lady Mary is burdened with a crooked spine and a tiny stature in an age when physical perfection equates to goodness and vice versa. Both girls have inherited the Tudor blood that is more curse than blessing. It is court painter Levina Teerlinc who helps the girls survive Mary's reign, but when the Queen's sister, the hot-headed Elizabeth, inherits the crown, the world at court becomes increasingly treacherous for the Grey girls. For either girl to marry without the queen's permisison would be a potentially fatal political act, perceived as a treasonous grab for the throne, but Elizabeth is unlikely to let either girl ally herself and become an even more dangerous focus for her enemies. Each young woman must decide how far she will go to defy her queen and find the safety and love she longs for"--
