Описание: This book talks about a brilliant history, of the succession of James I of England, and the shifting power and lethal politics that brought him to the throne. In the dawn of the 17th century, when Mary Queen of Scots was dead and Elizabeth I grown old, the eyes of the English turned to Mary's son, James VI of Scotland. Leanda de Lisle's book focuses on the intense period of raised hopes and dashed expectations, between Christmas 1602 and Christmas 1603, during which Elizabeth died, James was crowned, and the ancient enemies of England and Scotland were ruled by one monarch for the first time. With its focus on a narrow space of time, this immensely readable history illuminates a wider period, telling in dramatic detail how the suffocating conservatism of Elizabeth's rule, was replaced with that of the energetic, James. It is a story in which fortunes were made and lives lost as courtiers vied for wealth and influence. As well as painting a superb portrait of Court life, de Lisle explores the forces that shaped James's life, his separation from his mother and the violence of his Scottish kingdom; his marriage to the vivacious Anna of Denmark and the failed rebellions, government corruption and religious persecution, which set the stage for James's accession to the throne of England. Drawing extensively from original sources and contemporary accounts, this vivid account of the cusp of the Tudor and Stuart centuries, brings to life a period of glamour and intrigue that marked the beginning of a new age.

Описание: The dramatic untold story of the Grey sisters, heirs to the Tudor throne. Lady Jane Grey is an iconic figure in English history. Misremembered as the 'Nine Days
Queen', she has been mythologized as a child-woman destroyed on the altar of political expediency.
Behind the legend, however, was an opinionated and often rebellious
adolescent who died a passionate leader, not merely a victim. Growing up in Jane's shadow, her sisters Katherine and Mary would have to tread carefully to survive. The dramatic lives
of the younger Grey sisters remain little known, but under English law they were the heirs -- and rivals -- to the Tudor monarchs Mary and Elizabeth I.
The beautiful Katherine
ignored Jane's dying request that she remain faithful to her beliefs, changing her religion to retain Queen Mary's favour only to then risk life and freedom in a secret marriage that
threatened Queen Elizabeth's throne. While Elizabeth's closest adviser fought to save Katherine, her younger sister Mary remained at court as the queen's Maid of Honour. Too plain to
be considered significant, it seemed that Lady Mary Grey, at least, would escape the burden of her royal blood.
But then she too fell in love, and incurred the queen's fury.
Exploding the many myths of Lady Jane's life and casting fresh light onto Elizabeth's reign, acclaimed historian Leanda de Lisle brings the tumultuous world of the Grey sisters to life, at a
time when a royal marriage could gain you a kingdom or cost you everything.

Описание: The War At Home Fear permeates the Rhode Island coastal town where Robert, his mother, and sister are living out the war with his paternal grandparents: Fear of Nazi submarines offshore. Fear of Abel Hoffman, a German artist living reclusively outside of town. And for Robert, a more personal fear, of his hot-tempered, controlling grandfather. As Robert watches the townspeople's hostility toward Hoffman build, he worries about his sensitive cousin Elliot's friendship with the artist. And he wonders more and more about the family secret everyone seems to be keeping from him--a secret involving Robert's father, a bomber pilot in Europe. Will Elliot's ability to detach himself from the turmoil around him be enough to sustain him when prejudice and suspicions erupt into violence? And can Robert find his own way to deal with the shocking truth about his family's past?
