If you are a person who loved Downton Abbey, you will love this book. It is another look at upstairs, downstairs relations, but in pre-Elizabethan England. Brendon Prescott was a squire for a family in the English country side. When his family can to London, he came along as a servant to one of the young men in the family. Brendon knew his job but, he was not prepared for his new role as protector of Mary and Elizabeth Tudor. Edward the King and their brother has died and there is some question of who will be the new ruler. Many want Mary, though she is a Papist and does not follow the church created by Henry the 8th. Some want Elizabeth because she follows the church. But, his master wants someone he can control and make himself the new king of England.
