"Elizabeth St.John has brought the early Stuart Court in the years before the English Civil War vividly to life." - Historical Novel Society Review
"Elizabeth St.John offers great drama and intrigue in her compelling debut novel The Lady of the Tower." - M.K. Tod, author of Lies Told in Silence
"The Lady of the Tower is a beautifully produced novel with a gorgeous cover design, a compelling back cover blurb and a well-crafted story that will keep you both engaged and entertained. The author has a lovely voice and a smooth writing style. The book was professionally produced and a joy to read. All in all, this was a stellar entry and I give the author much recognition for a job well done. The St. Johns are a dynasty worthy of many tales and tributes. The journal entries were clever and I love the verbiage you used for both the journal and letter inclusions. I enjoyed this novel and thank you for sharing your world with us."

About the Author
Elizabeth St.John was brought up in England and lives in California. She has tracked down family papers and residences from Nottingham Castle, Lydiard Park, to Castle Fonmon and The Tower of London Although her ancestors sold a few castles and country homes along the way (it's hard to keep a good castle going these days), Lucy and her family still occupy them - in the form of portraits, memoirs, and gardens that carry their imprint.
