The Queen's Maid by June Crebbin


The Queen's Maid by June Crebbin

Lady Jane Hargrave is a reluctant maid of honour at the court of Queen Elizabeth I - but before she knows it she is appearing in a Shakespeare play, helping Francis Drake fight off the Spanish Armada and saving the Queen's life. Long live the Queen! Long live adventure!


It is the vivid description of the battle which dominates the book and which the seven-plus will enjoy. (Newbury Weekly News)
