"Eliza Rose Camperdowne, who boasts the same blazing orange hair as her king and the outcast Elizabeth, his daughter, is young and headstrong but knows her duty. As the only daughter of a noble family, she must marry a man of wealth and title. There is no other fate for a girl of her standing. But when a surprising turn of events lands Eliza Rose in the royal court as a maid of honour, she is drawn into the dizzying orbit of Henry the Eighth. Is her glamorous flirt of a cousin, Katherine Howard, an ally in this treacherous place or her worst enemy? Should she trust Ned Barsby, the king's page-gentle yet jaded, handsome yet unsuitable - or quiet her impossible feelings for him? And can even the most clever and willful young woman, the king's "bold ginger kitten," direct her own fate and follow her heart in a world ruled by powerful men? This debut young adult novel from popular television historian Lucy Worsley is a vivid, romantic, and thrilling glimpse behind the scenes of the volatile Tudor court. "
