Love is a choice you make every day.

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

From the Back Cover:

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 . . .
