Eleven days after the bloody death of the Queen, a young woman is dressing for her wedding to the King. She knows she must bear a son - or face ruin. She is haunted by the fate of her predecessor.

 Jane begins to expose a gentler side to the King, but she clings to the old faith while living in an England in the throes of a religious revolution, where those who speak out risk a brutal death.

She faces plague and rebellion – and the shadow of the past.

How is she to survive in this terrifying world?

A young woman of courage and compassion, come from a family tainted by scandal, Jane was driven by the strength of her faith, and a belief that she might do some good in a wicked world.

All will be well if she can give the King what he wants.
