The bloody tower (My story) – Valerie Wilding

The Bloody Tower is the diary of Tilly Middleton, from 1553-1559 who is the daughter of the physician in the Tower of London.

Tilly’s diary begins just before the death of King Edward VI,

who was the son of Henry VIII. It continues through the brief and tragic reign of young Jane Grey,

then the strong and scary reign of Mary Tudor, right up to when Elizabeth I came to the throne.

Tilly keeps her ears and eyes open and she and her friend Tom,

who works in the royal menagerie, soon find out what’s going on.

She needs to know what’s happening, because she has a secret which she must share with someone – someone very important indeed.
