Publisher's Summary

From the author of Queen's Gambit, a gripping historical novel about two sisters who tread as dangerously close to the crown as their tragic sister, Lady Jane Grey, executed after just nine days on the throne.

Early in Mary Tudor's turbulent reign, Lady Catherine and Lady Mary Grey are reeling after the brutal execution of their elder seventeen-year-old sister, Lady Jane Grey, and the succession is by no means stable. In Sisters of Treason, Elizabeth Freemantle brings these young women to life in a spellbinding Tudor tale of love and politics.

Neither sister is well suited to a dangerous life at court. Flirtatious Lady Catherine, thought to be the true heir, cannot control her compulsion to love and be loved. Her sister, clever Lady Mary, has a crooked spine and a tiny stature in an age when physical perfection equates to goodness - and both girls have inherited the Tudor blood that is more curse than blessing. For either girl to marry without royal permission would be a potentially fatal political act. It is the royal portrait painter, Levina Teerlinc, who helps the girls survive these troubled times. She becomes their mentor and confidante, but when the Queen's sister, the hot-headed Elizabeth, inherits the crown, life at court becomes increasingly treacherous for the surviving Grey sisters. Ultimately each young woman must decide how far she will go to defy her Queen, risk her life, and find the safety and love she longs for.

    "Thoroughly Enjoyed!"

    I love historical fiction, but sometimes I'm nervous that they might be dry and boring. Not the case with this book. The first half entertained me and transported me to Tudor England completely. I expected the story to drop off in the second half, but it did not. In fact, it became more and more romantic and captivating.

    I've already bought Fremantle's other book, and I can't wait to start it! Highly recommend.

    "Wonderful"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sisters of Treason to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sisters of Treason?

    How much I liked all the Grey sisters


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I listen as I fall asleep at night. Love the audio versions


    If you could take any character from Sisters of Treason out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Mary. She was an observer to all that was happening and very intelligent.


    Any additional comments?

    Would recommend to anyone who enjoys historical novels

    "intriguing, suspenseful, great read (listen!)"

    great narration was wonderful! brought the characters to life. more fiction than history due to limited documentation on the lives of women in the 16th century. but goes along with others I have ready. very believable.

    "Great book for fans of this genre"

    Engaging story, good performance. The perspective and story of Levina Teerlinc is unusual for this type of book, making it more interesting.

    "Knew it would be good!"

    I suspected I would enjoy this read because it shed some light on the others in the Grey family. So much is said about Jane, but the others in her family were also in a bad situation. The story told on top of the facts kept me coming back for more.

    "The narrator is horrible!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I love the subject area and I really tried to listen to this book but the reader/narrator is awful. She is such a horrible reader that it distracted me from the story. I returned the book. Just couldn't listen to her.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Elizabeth Fremantle again?

    I would read the book but never listen to anything read by Corrie James. It was just so bad.

    "Really good, but...."

    I devoured this in a very short time but didn't emerge totally unscathed. The author is limited by historical events which results in a portrayal of calamity upon catastrophe - don't listen last thing at night if you want pleasant dreams!
