The Story of Lady Jane Grey
Written by Deborah Meroff
The true story of seventeen-year-old Lady Jane Grey, Queen of England for nine days.
"Written in first person singular, Coronation of Glory is the fictionalized account of Lady Jane Grey, first cousin to King Edward VI of England, who was unwillingly thrust into a position of prominence. Her short-lived reign of nine days, wedged between the Protestant Edward and the Catholic “bloody” Mary, was a tragic one. Manipulated by greesy politicians who advanced their own ends, the child-queen was an unhappy pawn - a pawn who would have despaired had she not had faith in God.
Deborah Meroff has the ability to weave together fact and fiction and spin a good yarn. The book somewhat diminishes in literary merit, however, for two reasons. Firstly, because of an unnecessary and somewhat graphic emphasis on pre-nuptial and nuptial matters; secondly, although Jane’s approach to death and the death itself is described in a most moving manner, her growth and understanding of the Protestant faith could have been dealt with more consistently throughout the book.
Adult reading." - Christine Farenhorst, Christian Renewal
“Miss Meroff . . . has fictionalized the story of Lady Jane Grey in a thoroughly absorbing manner . . . she has succeeded in making me believe this is what really happened. I kept wanting to read on — the book is full of action and interest.” - Elisabeth Elliot
