Item Description...
Robert Devereux, the Earl of Essex, has just been beheaded for treason. Now over a hundred of his followers are in London prisons awaiting trial and execution, among them Jane Grant's grandson, Thomas. While desperately searching for a way to obtain a pardon for Thomas, Jane hears of a strange request Queen Elizabeth has made for information about Lady Greensleeves-information only Jane knows. Jane devises a plan to use the story of Greensleeves to gain an audience with the Queen and plead for Thomas' release from the Tower. But from the beginning the Queen's request is shrouded in mystery. Why does she want information about Greensleeves? Is her interest in Jane's story just the whim of an eccentric old queen, or does she suspect Jane's involvement in another plot against the throne of England, more far-reaching than even the Essex rebellion? Though Jane must try to save her grandson, her plan is dangerous, for Thomas is not the only traitor in her family. In a country where her faith is illegal, Jane has her own secret to hide, and saving her grandson's life could cost Jane her own.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fascinating from several vantage points  Aug 7, 2001
Marticia Burns McKinney earned a Bachelor and Masters degree from Emory University. Although Greensleeves is her debut novel, she has written for national and religious publications. She also a contributed pieces to Treasures Of A Woman's Heart and Seasons Of A Woman's Heart.

Set in Tutor England at the time of Queen Elizabeth's reign, Greensleeves is the dual story of historical England as seen through a story woven for the Queen by Jane Grant in an attempt to free her grandson and only living heir from prison after his part in the foiled rebellion by the Earl of Essex, Robert Devereux. Jane is a widow living in poverty who is educated, bright, and desperate. She makes her way into the castle and finds herself sitting before the Queen herself spinning the story of Greensleeves in an attempt to gain the Queen's compassion:

"Was this some sort of game, or was she opening the door for the opportunity I had sought? Perhaps God had given me this chance. Perhaps this was the only chance I would have to make my petition for Thomas. I glanced around the room. All her women were there, silently moving in the background, but clearly listening. If they heard, then so be it. I would lay out my case at once."

Greensleeves is fascinating from several vantage points. First, it tells the story of the Tutor succession accurately and in stark detail. Second, it spins a yarn surrounding one of the most famous songs of all time. It is a mystery of sorts, and it is also a sad tale of lost love. Its Christian leanings are also very interesting, as it lays out a period of history that explains the beginnings of the Church of England; the beginning of the English Empire; the wars between the Catholics and Protestants, and King Henry's life itself.

Ms. McKinney manages to humanize English history through her brilliant tale. Greensleeves is a boon to every English major; is educational for the lay public; and is just plain a wonderful book the reader quickly becomes engrossed in. I couldn't put it down, and I was entertained completely through every page. I didn't want it to end! Bravo.
