Item description for Caught in the Web: A Tale of Tudor Times by Faith Cook...
Overview Following on from the success of the historical novel Under the Scaffold, Faith Cook has taken the content of her acclaimed biography of Lady Jane Grey and crafted a novel around a fictional member of the royal court, but based upon the facts surrounding the life of Lady Jane Grey, focusing particularly upon her Christian faith. This historic novel enables the reader to gain an appreciation of the courage of this young lady and will be an inspiration.
Publishers Description Hal had seen it coming. It was all a plot, a wicked plot. Lady Jane was being snared in a plot. Suddenly he found himself thinking of a spider's web that he had seen up in the rafters when he had broken his leg. He remembered how the helpless fly was trapped in the fine silken threads. Was Lady Jane caught like that fly in a web woven by the cruelty of ambitious men and women?
Using a narrative form in which some of the characters are fictitious, Faith Cook brings to life for the modern reader a period of English history which was marked by great suffering for Christians who sought to remain faithful to the truths of the Bible. The account is based first of all on the life of young Lady Jane Grey, nine-day Queen of England, who found herself caught up in a web of intrigue and political ambition, and then on the frightening cruelties which followed during the reign of Mary Tudor.
