The Lovereading4Kids comment
Intrigue, treachery and political ambition drive this story of how courageous Eleanor keeps herself and her mother safe by defying her father and even the great King Henry V111 himself. Eleanor is a feisty heroine whose bravery brings the results she seeks – and finally love too.
If you enjoyed this then make sure you read her first novel, Between Two Seas.

The Lady In The Tower by Marie-Louise Jensen
Spring 1540 - I am afraid. You are in grave danger. Mother, will you run away with me if I can free you? The servants call it the Lady Tower: the isolated part of the castle where Eleanor's mother is imprisoned after a terrible accusation.
But with danger and betrayal at every turn, she can trust no one. Especially not her father. Eleanor must use all her cunning to survive.
For she soon realises that it is not just her mother she needs to save ...but also herself.
For Between Two Seas, Marie-Louise's extraordinary debut:
'A riveting read. I was left with a real sense of having been there myself, and can offer no higher praise than that.' Philip Ardagh, Guardian
