A Sweet Disorder by Jacqueline Kolosov

Sixteen-year old Miranda has no idea how much her life is going to change upon hearing the news of her fathers death. Left with little dowry to offer, Miranda faces a broken engagement, and is sent to live with her fathers cousin, the Count John Hardwood, and his wife whose primary goal is to take her to Court and marry her off to the insufferable Lord Seagrave for their own profit. nbsp; At Queen Elizabeths court, Miranda soon learns that a large part of hernbsp;survival will depend on her knowing who to trust. All the maidens at Court dream of being one of the Queens ladies in waiting. When Miranda distinguishes herself from the rest with her exquisite sewing and embroidery skills, she gets the attention of the Queen, much to the anger and jealousy of the courtiers, ladies in waiting, and even a trusted friend. nbsp; As Miranda begins to win the Queens favor, she is given the ultimate test-to recreate Elizabeths mothers (Ann Boleyn) coronation gown. Miranda knows this is her opportunity to escape the shackles of convention and get out of a marriage to Lord Seagrave and instead establish an independent life at Court as the Queens seamstress. But how willnbsp;she reunite with Henry Raleigh, the man to whom she was once promised, and has always loved? Withnbsp;sophisticated writing, an eye for historically accurate detail, and anbsp;flairnbsp;for suspense, Jacqueline Kolosov re-creates the intrigues of Elizabethan society with a vividness and immediacy that will make teen readers recall thenbsp;pleasures andnbsp;tensions of their own lives.
