really liked it

A Murder For Her Majesty is a sweet little book that will appeal most to young teens. I read it, thinking to give it to my 11 year old niece, although she might struggle with some of the "big" words like inscrutably, unrepentantly, lamentably, impertinent, or innuendoes, to list a few.

Eleven year old Alice witnesses the murder of her father, and in her desperate flee to seek a friend, is befriended by some members of a boys choir. They disguise her as one of them and sneak her into the choir but Alice soon discovers that her father's murderers are searching for her.

This mystery is balanced by the details of daily life at the York Minster during the Elizabethan era. This is a page-turner and thoroughly enjoyable.
