The Young Lady Jane Grey by Caroline Corby

Post by SonjaMarie » Tue November 11th, 2008, 6:33 am

I was doing a search for Lady Jane Grey with 2009 and found this:

It's not out till April 2009. Would be nice if it had a cover with Jane on it, would make me buying it fast more likely then without one.

I'd love to read this. According to family lore, I'm very distantly related to her family. An ancestor, a one-armed pensioner, came over to America in the 17th century and I'm descended from him. Would love to know what she really looked like.

I think that book may be part of a series. I have a couple others by that author I haven't read yet (too many books not enough time!) in a series called "Before They Were Famous." The two I have are about Boudica and Cleopatra. They are novels about 200 pages each if I remember right. A little below young adult reading level, maybe written for ages 10-13 or so?

Two young adult novels about Lady Jane Grey I enjoyed were Nine Days a Queen by Ann Rinaldi and The Nine Days Queen by Karleen Bradford.

I havent read either of these books, but I want to. We had the one by Anne Rinaldi in the lib. I was going to snag it but never did then a girl took it out and has held it hostage for the past two years. She claims "I never took it out." :rolleyes:

I don't get why people steal library books! If I'm going to own a book I'd rather buy a nice clean copy without stickers.
