Sue MacLeod µ 5 characters characters Namesake ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free It started with a history project Mr Gregor assigned a research paper on a figure from the Tudor era and of course Jane Grey had to pick her namesake Lady Jane Grey the fifteen year old girl whose parents schemed to place her on the throne of England then abandoned her to face the executioner The project. Originally posted at current day Halifax teen Jane Grey and fellow classmates in her Advanced Placement History are embarking on their research projects and it would seem obvious that she would focus on her Namesake Lady Jane GreyJust a bit of a history lesson for those unfamiliar with the Nine Days ueen In 1553 due to the machinations of her parents and the Duke of Northumberland Lady Jane Grey was made heir to the King of England Edward VI She had already wed the son of the Duke of Northumberland so when Edward VI passed the Duke declared Lady Jane to be ueen of England sure that he could control the throne through her However according to succession Lady Jane s cousin Mary King Edward VI s half sister and King Henry VIII s daughter would be next ueen Imprisoned until the arrival of soon to be ueen Mary I Lady Jane was hopeful of a pardon because becoming ueen had never been her intention However with her parents and the Duke playing the odds with her against Mary and because her strong belief in her Protestant faith conflicted with Mary s Catholicism a pardon was not granted and Lady Jane was executedIn the twenty first century Jane discovers a small book called Booke of Prayre while unpacking her backpack of library books Reading aloud from it Jane is transported mysteriously to the environs of the Tower of London eavesdropping on two women Mistress Tilney and Mistress Ellen gossiping about our lady Repeated visits to 1553 has Jane making the acuaintance of Lady Jane Grey and learning of her fate her hopes her regrets and her position on her faith Knowing what historically happened to Lady Jane Jane wonders about her purpose in being sent back Was she to help the Lady convert to Catholicism Was she to help Lady Grey escape Or was she there simply to provide her with companionshipDealing with her own tenuous situation at home Jane is sympathetic to Lady Jane s dilemma recognizing the similarity in the extent of their dire circumstances and inability to change them Since the death of her father Jane has come to recognize that her mother Analise works in one of three modes Mode One is Single Mother as Hero Mode Two is the Nothing mode and Mode Three is Hell Though a competent English professor Analise harbours much anger related to her husband s death and deals with it using alcohol which just exacerbates her mood swings and colours her interactions with Jane Not surprising that Jane has concerns when her history group must meet at eachother s homes for study and editing sessions And with best friend Megan hanging out with the tactless Crisco and wrapped up in a boyfriend situation Jane is feeling and isolated and unable to find support For Jane slipping back into 1553 gives her an opportunity to exert some controlWhile Namesake may be initially seen as a standard time slip novel with a contemporary character going back in time to learn something which she could apply to her own life the book goes beyond this by Jane trying to take an active role in Lady Jane s situation even to the point of altering history if need be Jane educates Lady Jane on the vernacular and popular culture of her Halifax and Canada And while Lady Jane does begin to try out some of her new vocabulary she uses it as a foreign language not dropping the occasional work into her own speech Sue MacLeod has given Lady Jane a voice so authentic that her use of newly acuired vocabulary provides for some much needed humour Her voice is true and melodic never wavering from that of a sixteenth century young womanI am especially pleased by the direction the author takes Jane s time slip allowing for the two young women just sixteen to share their lives and their stories and Jane anticipating bringing Lady Jane back with her But when Lady Jane does slip into Jane s time it spurs a new relationship between Jane and her neighbour the elderly woman she has nicknamed Mrs Lynde la Green Gables who surprisingly becomes her salvationThe history is true the twists uniue and the touches of humour and romance are heart warming And Namesake still delivers an open ending that takes the reader to a hopeful situation than Lady Jane s true horrific ending
