A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

The dangers for the young princess at court are brilliantly captured in this nail-biting story of how the young Elizabeth keeps herself safe following the execution of her mother, Anne Boleyn. Held captive and taunted with malicious rumours, Elizabeth tells of her imprisonment and of her fears of being killed for witchcraft following the rumours of her mother’s dark skills in enchanting Kind Henry VIII. Full of palace intrigue and shot through with dark magic, this is a thrilling true story of a feisty young girl’s fight for survival.  This is a new masterpiece of historical fiction from the bestselling author of Raven Queen.
