Love is a choice you make every day.

Content in her comfortable marriage of twenty-two years, Jane Lindsay had never expected to watch her husband,  rad, pack his belongings and walk out the door of their Manhattan home. But when it happens, she feels powerless to stop him and the course of events that follow Brad’s departure.

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. Feeling an instant connection to the mysterious ring bearing her namesake, Jane begins a journey to learn more about the ring—and perhaps about herself.


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.

As the stories of both Janes dovetail through the journey of one ring, it becomes clear that each woman has far more influence over her life than she once imagined. It all comes down to the choices each makes despite the realities they face.

    " This was an interesting book; the story of two women who lived centuries apart, but whose lives were woven together a bit through a beautiful betrothal ring. I enjoyed reading about Jane Lindsay, a modern day New Yorker, who struggles to hold on to a marriage that seems to be crumbling around her. I liked her character, and I enjoyed watching her grow and rediscover herself and her relationship to her husband. I also enjoyed reading about Lady Jane Grey, an amazing girl who lived in England in the 1500's and eventually became Queen of England, if just for 9 days. The historical fiction was intriguing, and the modern day story was equally poignant. I found this book to be a quick read and a good reminder about the choices we make. "
