Lady in Waiting.
This is the third book of Susan's that I read and loved. Like her other novels I read (The Shape of Mercy and A Sound Among the Trees), Lady in Waiting is set in two time periods with both stories dovetailing nicely into one another.
Here's the description: Content in her comfortable marriage of twenty-two years, Jane Lindsay had never expected to watch her husband walk out the door of their Manhattan home.
Jane finds an old ring in a box of relics from a British jumble sale and discovers a Latin inscription in the band along with just one recognizable word: Jane.
In the sixteenth-century, Lucy Day becomes the dressmaker to Lady Jane Grey, an innocent young woman whose fate seems to be controlled by a dangerous political and religious climate, one threatening to deny her true love and pursuit of her own interests.
Susan's beautiful writing draws you into other worlds. I love that. Go, read, enjoy!
