Coronation of Glory

Author: Deborah Meroff
Genre: Biography (historical fiction)
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9
Type: Biography/historical fiction
Number of pages: 298
Time period: 1500's
Main characters: Lady Jane Grey, Edward, Mary, many others
Exciting events: Court intrigue!
Passage from book: I remember perfectly that day in early spring of the year 1547. It had been only three months since our Sovereign King Henry the Eighth was laid in state beneath the stones of St. George's Chapel at Windsor; now my guardian and I were on our way to visit the Queen Dowager.
My overall opinion: An excellent book! Lady Jane is telling the story herself (hence the historical fiction) and at the same time, it's a biography of her. It was very very interesting. Deborah Meroff did a great job! I highly recommend this book, especially to anyone interested in King Henry's time.

I started reading this once, it even had the same cover as in the picture! Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish it before I had to give it back to the lady I borrowed it from. It's a lovely tale though!
