Beautifully written, but rather upsetting. ( )
  KittyCatrinCat | Aug 29, 2021 |
Innocent Traitor is a tragic story about a young woman who was used as a pawn to gain power in the British monarchy. The author has built up the characters so that the reader gets to know all involved. This is a very long book and one that takes a lot of concentration to keep plugging through the story. It received four stars here in this review. ( )

Positively loved this book. Story of Queen (Lady) Jane Grey told from the points of view of several different people, Lane Jane, her mother, her nurse, Queen Mary, Queen Katherine Parr as well as several male narrators, her father, and John Dudley, Duke of Northumberland. The book is face paced and I had a hard time putting it down - a definite must read. ( )

I liked this book. It was told in first person narrative by a variety of different women surrounding and responsible for Jane Grey. I did not find Jane Grey that likeable of a character-personally, she was just a little too....good. But, the novel was very detailed and I enjoyed a look into that period in history. I had not realized that Jane openly-in front of witnesses-refused the crown. I also had not realized that Queen Mary had her killed inorder to expedite her marriage. Jane is ultimately a tragic figure.
This book was good but very slow paced for a fiction novel. ( )

Innocent Traitor by Alison Weir is the engrossing story of Lady Jane Grey. She was the daughter of scheming, ambitious parents who are at first disappointed that their first child was a female, but all too soon are plotting a dangerous future for her. Through her mother, Jane is a Tudor, niece to Henry VIII. Being that close to royalty brought great privileges but in the 15th century it was never safe to have even the slightest claim to the throne.

Jane is raised as a pawn, first with an eye to marrying her to Henry VIII’s son, Edward but when Edward is dying, the protestant powers behind him scheme to have him declare Jane as his heir, in order to prevent his sister, Mary, a staunch Catholic, from taking the throne. Jane, herself, had no ambitions in this direction, would rather have been left alone with her books and meditations, but at age fourteen, she is forced to first marry into a powerful family and then to accept the throne. Meanwhile Princess Mary having learned of Edward’s death, proclaimed herself Queen. In only a few short days, the people and the nobles have declared for Mary, sealing Jane’s fate.

This is a well written, stirring account of this young woman’s life. Weir skilfully weaves British history into an enthralling story and gives life to these historic figures. With it’s riveting plot and rich descriptions, this book would interest anyone interested in English history. ( )
