This book was only just OK for me. I have read other books about the Grey sisters that were so much better. I just couldn't connect with any of the characters. Usually the stories I've read, they are written as if you are right there with everyone - part of the story. With the exception of Lady Jane's beheading, you aren't there at all. It's like you are just reading someone's journal about events after they take place. I was very disappointed in this book and doubt I would read anything from this author again. ( )

Good story. Dragged out a bit too long. ( )

Sisters of Treason by Elizabeth Freemantle was an epic historical fiction novel that through the telling of the story of the Grey sisters, Jane, Katherine and Mary, also paints a vivid picture of Tudor England and the machinations behind the succession to the English Throne. Opening with the beheading of Jane Grey and continuing on through the years of Mary Tudor and her half-sister, Elizabeth, this book is chock-full of court intrigue, gossip and scandal as the lives of the two remaining Grey sisters, play out.

The author does an excellent job with blending history and fiction seamlessly, obviously well researched, she brings her characters to full life. I’ve grown a little weary of reading about the Tudors but found this book interesting dealing as it does with some lesser known individuals. I have previously read of Jane Grey but this was the first time I have read of her two surviving sisters and the difficult, complicated lives that they led.

Although I fell headfirst into this story and was totally absorbed, some might find this book a little long. I would however definitely recommend Sisters of Treason to any fans of historical fiction. ( )

Most of us know a little about Lady Jane Grey, her short tenure as Queen of England and her subsequent beheading. What is not so well known is the story of her younger sisters. Katherine is a flighty and beautiful girl, Mary is, in her words in the book, a midget with a crooked back. The Grey family are dangerously close to the throne and so pose a threat to first Queen Mary and then Queen Elizabeth. As a result, their lives are barely their own and any attempt at freedom is quickly curtailed.

I don't read much historical fiction but I do enjoy some now and again and this book was a good choice. It was a bit slow to get going but when it did I found myself getting engrossed in the story. Mary was my favourite character as she's feisty, honest and quite fascinating. It's clear the author has done a lot of research into the period and the Grey family, but has also woven an intricate fictional story into the facts that are known. I quite fancy reading more by her now. ( )
