Summary
Browsing an antiques shop in Wiltshire, Alison Bannister stumbles across a delicate old portrait--identified as the doomed Tudor queen, Anne Boleyn. Except Alison knows better. The subject is Mary Seymour, the daughter of Katherine Parr, who was taken to Wolf Hall in 1557 and presumed dead after going missing as a child. And Alison knows this because she, too, lived at Wolf Hall and knew Mary...more than four hundred years ago.

The painting of Mary is more than just a beautiful object for Alison--it holds the key to her past life, the unlocking of the mystery surrounding Mary's disappearance and how Alison can get back to her own time. To when she and Mary were childhood enemies yet shared a pact that now, finally, must be fulfilled, no matter the cost.

Bestselling author of House of Shadows Nicola Cornick offers a provocative alternate history of rivals, secrets and danger, set in a time when a woman's destiny was determined by the politics of men and luck of birth. A spellbinding tale for fans of Kate Morton, Philippa Gregory and Barbara Erskine.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Alison Bannister is not whom she appears to be, and the secrets she has been keeping are about to come undone. She appears to be a woman of the twenty-first century, but she really is from the Tudor Era, and raised alongside Mary Seymour, daughter of Katherine Parr, the last wife of King Henry VIII, when they both became orphans. When she comes across a painting of Mary in a small shop in England, her present-day life starts to unravel. The shop claims that a well-known historian has identified this portrait as a previously unknown image of Anne Boleyn, but Alison knows this isn't true. The historian turns out to be a former boyfriend of Alison's, and he begins to ask uncomfortable questions about how Alison knows so much about this portrait. The story of her life in Tudor times is gradually revealed, including her search for her son and the agreement she had with Mary Boleyn. This story contains many similarities to the popular Outlander series, including a small group of people who can time travel, but is primarily a romance novel. The descriptions and characters are nicely written, and the story itself would be nice to read on a leisurely vacation, but not as intense as the Outlander series.--Rebecca Gerber Copyright 2018 Booklist"
