"Lady In Waiting" by Susan Meissner
I just got finished reading Lady in Waiting by Susan Meissner, and I absolutely loved it! I have to admit that I like history but do not spend much time studying it nor do I know a lot of history, especially when it comes to English history. Even with that said I could not put this historical fiction novel down. I only read it in the evening when my daughter went to bed and still managed to finish it in just three days. This book had the perfect amount of history and fiction mixed together to create a beautiful story. This novel is about two Janes of different times; one of the present day United States (Jane Lindsay) and one of the 16th Century England (Lady Jane Grey). The two stories intertwine when Jane Lindsay is intrigued when she finds and old ring with an inscription and her first name. Both present day Jane and 16th Century Jane have trials with their marriages and struggle to find who they truly are and want to be. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that is interested in history and/or just enjoys a really well written fiction novel. This book entices you to keep reading to find out the story of the two Janes. I received a free copy of this book for an honest review through Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers.
