Publisher's Summary

If you liked Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel, you'll love this brilliant historical novel by New York Times best seller Karen Harper.

Thomas Cromwell may have been known as the powerful and ambitious henchman for King Henry VIII, but the woman he installed in the king's court may have had the biggest impact on England's history....

Katherine Ashley was just the daughter of a poor country beekeeper, no matter how clever and beguiling she was. But when she catches the eye of Thomas Cromwell, King Henry VIII's chief minister, she finds her fortune suddenly, drastically changing. Cromwell secures Katherine a place in the king's court as the governess to and protector of Anne Boleyn's only child, Elizabeth. But her new position is not all that it seems to be. She is a governess...but also a spy, keeping tabs on the king's scandalous wife. 

In the face of exile, imprisonment, assassination, and even a secret romance, Katherine will have to risk everything for Elizabeth I, one of the greatest monarchs in British history.

Unique point of view of a tutor servant.

Even though the story is familiar. Because it's written from the point of view of Elizabeth's lady and waiting, it lends the tale another dimension. It would make a good movie!
