Every major decision in Jane Lindsay's life has been made for her. When her husband becomes disillusioned with their marriage and moves out, Jane simply waits for him to decide if they have a future together. While her regrets clash with the fragile hope of reconciliation, Jane finds an ancient betrothal ring engraved with her own name and concealed in a sixteenth-century prayer book. Jane comes to believe that the ring once belonged to Lady Jane Grey, the sixteen-year-old girl thrust upon England's throne in 1553 by power-hungry men -- only to be abandoned by them, and executed. As Jane recalls Lady Jane's story, she begins to see the parallels in her own life. Both women are victims of decisions made by others. Suddenly, Jane has a revelation -- she is not powerless, and she does have choices . . .
