Intricately woven and passionately written, this stunning debut is a sensitive yet powerful historical novel of love against all odds that will enchant readers everywhere. It brings to life an unforgettable story of love, hope and royal duty, from a hugely talented new author.


Raven Queen by Pauline Francis

The life of Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Day Queen, is all too often remembered as just a line in a history book. This novel reveals the full and tragic story - a tale of treachery, power struggles, and religious turmoil in the Tudor court. It is also a sensitive story of love against all odds.
