Book Review: Innocent Traitor



Innocent Traitor by Alison Weir

Okay, between Philippa Gregory novels and The Tudors on Showtime, I'm currently big into the historical period of Henry VIII, so this novel directly feeds the addiction.

Though I knew it was a sad tale, I was still drawn to this novel (by historical NON-fiction writer Weir) about Lady Jane Grey, who was Queen of England for 9 days. Until she was beheaded. Because of other people's schemings. Darn.

This was a beautifully written novel about a really interesting period in British history, and I really felt as though I was taking the journey from cradle to grave with Lady Jane, and I liked the alternating voices of other "players" in the game.

Highly recommended, particularly if you heart Philippa Gregory novels!
