"Elizabeth Tilney surprised even herself by volunteering for the job of companion to Lady Jane Grey, who has been imprisoned in the Tower of London after only nine days a queen. All Elizabeth knows is she's keen to be away from home; she could do with some breathing space. And anyway, it won't be for long: Everyone knows Jane will go free as soon as the victorious new queen is crowned. Which is a good thing because the two sixteen-year-olds, cooped up together in a room in the Gentleman-gaoler's house, couldn't be less compatible Protestant Jane is an icily self-composed idealist, and Catholic Elizabeth is... well, anything but. They are united though by their disdain for the seventeen-year-old to whom Jane has recently been married off: petulant, noisily-aggrieved Gildford Dudley, held prisoner in a neighboring tower and keen to pursue his prerogative of a daily walk with his wife. As Jane's captivity extends into the increasingly turbulent last months of 1553, the two girls learn to live with each other with mutual respect and liking, but Elizabeth finds herself drawn into the difficult relationship between the newlyweds. And when, at the turn of the year, events take an unexpected and dangerous direction, her new-found loyalties are put to the test." -- From Book Jacket
