This book by: Susan Meissner is the story of two women named Jane; who live centuries apart but are connected by a betrothal ring. Jane Lindsay finds an antique ring with the name “Jane” engraved on it and sets off on a quest to discover the history behind it. Jane is enduring an emotional roller coaster while her marriage is falling apart. Lonely, she feels connected to the “Jane” who once owned the beautiful ring. Step back to the sixteenth-century and follow the life of Lady Jane Grey of Tudor England through the eyes of her dressmaker, Lucy Day.
Meissner does a great job incorporating both lives and stories in this contemporary and historical fiction. Reading this book sparked my interest in the true history of Lady Jane Grey and a more in-depth leisurely study of general Tudor history. I found this book very interesting. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the sixteenth century time period; understanding that it is a work of fiction.
