Lady In Waiting
Jane Lindsey is operates an antique shop that belongs to her aunt, that is unable to run it any longer. Her husband Brad decided to take a job out of town and just wants to be on his own for a while. Their son Conner is in college, so Jane is by herself. She has a friend in the UK that looks for estate sales and ships them to Jane and Jane does like wise as her friends runs a store for vintage clothing.
Jane received some boxes that had seen better days but when she got into them she found a little locked box and inside it was a prayer book that dated back in the 1600s, as she was looking at it she found lump and took her knife and carefully got it out of the binding of the book and it was a beautiful ring that had little jewels on the ring. on the inside was an inscription written in a language that Jane could not read but she could read her name "Jane" inscribed on the ring. That really got her interest to try and find out where the ring came from and who had it belonged too.
Meanwhile the story is told in two different eras, the one Jane is in is present day then the other is in England in the mid 1500s. This is the part that tells the story of Lady Jane Gray as she was growing up and Lucy her maid that did all of the little girls sewing and was with her through out the rest of her short life.
A very good story and the way Susan weaved the two eras together is remarkable.
