About "Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Day Queen of England"
The year 2004 marked the 450th anniversary of the death of Lady Jane Grey. Many accounts have appeared over the years; some present her in terms of stirring heroism, others as a sweet and innocent victim, and more recently as an unfortunate but misguided religious prig. This account presents a sympathetic, though realistic, assessment of Lady Jane's personality and the events of her life. In days when absolute truth has become a casualty of our post-modern society, with its tolerance of everything except strong Christian convictions, the faith of Lady Jane Grey remains a challenge to us all. Her unswerving courage, even when the alternatives of life or death were set before her and depended upon the answers she gave, should not be forgotten.
