  • If you read one Tudor tome this summer, make it this one. Fascinating and vividly drawn, the ending is heartbreaking

  • A top-notch literary thriller. Shots are fired, troths are plighted, sea voyages taken, escapes dared and mysteries solved

    Daily Telegraph
  • An eloquent novel, steeped in Tudor literary culture

  • Beautifully written, completely engrossing and a book that stays with you after the pages areclosed. Highly recommended

  • An enthralling, powerful tale

  • Fremantle shows how dangerous it was being closely related to Elizabeth I. A cracking read

  • A gorgeously readable and oh so captivating slice of historical fiction. Haunting, emotional and thought-provoking, The Girl in the Glass Tower is a beautiful foray into the past
