Book Description:

Although she ruled England for less than two weeks, Lady Jane Grey has been admired for generations for her courage and faithfulness to the gospel'"even though she was executed for treason at the age of sixteen. In this addition to the Christian Biographies for Young Readers series, Simonetta Carr tells Lady Jane Grey's story of intrigue and explains its context: the tumultuous politics of Reformation England.

Maps, photographs, and beautiful illustrations decorate the narrative, helping young readers visualize what life was like in sixteenth-century England. More importantly, they will learn the story of an extraordinary young girl who understood that she was saved only by the mercy of God and the merits of the blood of Jesus Christ.

Endorsements:

The short life and remarkable testimony of Lady Jane Grey is one of the extraordinary stories of Christendom. As a grandmother of twelve, I am grateful for a book that shows young readers the power of the gospel in the life of a young girl and that inspires them to live for God's glory.' '" Susan Hunt, pastor's wife, mother, grandmother, speaker, and author of numerous books for women and children, including Heirs of the Covenant and Big Truths for Little Kids.

Simonetta Carr has done it again: a lavishly illustrated and beautifully told story of an important Christian figure. Further, unlike so many women in church history who are known to us more as the wife or daughter of some famous saint, Lady Jane Grey possesses an importance all of her own. As with all of Simonetta's books, this is one to read and to cherish. --Carl Trueman, Professor of Historical Theology and Church History and Paul Woolley Chair of Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia.
