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

    "One of the BEST books I've listened to"

    Here's the thing, when you have a performance as extraordinary as this, you could even have a lousy story and it would sound great but, that is not the case here. Sisters of Treason is deliciously written by Elizabeth Fremantle. Granted, it is a novel but the research is so good and her storytelling talent is so great that I felt transported to the era and by the end, was left wanting much more. This is the first book I have read by her, and I am already cueing a couple more. I can't wait to see what comes next.

    "Super annoying narration and story is lacking"
    Would you try another book from Elizabeth Fremantle and/or the narrators?

    Probably not. Nothing ever happens in this book. It is a waste of time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Elizabeth Fremantle again?

    Hmm.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her wispy watery voice just grated on my nerves. Stay away!

    "Good Read!"

    I've read/listened to SO many books based on the Tudors and Plantagenets, but this was my first time to read a story of the Grey family in the aftermath of Jane's execution. I found it to be an interesting story and very enjoyable. I tend to overlook historical inaccuracies most of the time. If I were reading for research, it would be a different matter. I read for the joy of reading and a book that holds my attention. This book filled that bill. The narration was also very good, and most of us know narrators can sometimes make or break an audible book. I got a quarter of the way through book one of Game of Thrones and gave up because the narrator drove me nuts. Sometimes you're better off with print!

    "Intriguing and spell binding"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Although it saddened me to know of the Grey family's plight. I only knew if Lady Jane Grey and her ambitious father. Thank you for providing such an unusual look at the lives of Her family.

    "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.

    "Extraordinary!!"

    I adore historical fiction and this is now at the top of my list. The writing is exceptional. A class unto itself. I enjoyed every word! I hadn't known of Ms Fremantle's work and now I want to read everything she has ever written, including her post-it notes. This story is quite a tragedy and her telling of it brings compassion and awe to the reader. Thank you Ms Fremantle for this extraordinary book! May I also say, and I listen to one to two audio books a month, that this was the most exceptional reading by the women who read the story. They were a true delight to listen to.

    "Great book!"

    I am a big fan of historical dramas both fiction and non-fiction. Elizabeth Fremantle is the queen of writing in magnificent detail that uses facts and imagination. This book left me thinking about it for days. Always a good sign. The narrators were the best of the best. They brought the characters alive. Thank you Elizabeth for your talent that keeps me curious and excited.
