A Net for Small Fishes

AUTHOR: Lucy Jago

'Sumptuous - If you're feeling bereft after finishing The Mirror and the Light, let Jago transport you to the Jacobean court' Telegraph

'A bravura historical debut - a gloriously immersive escape' Guardian

-------------------------------------------------
Frances Howard has beauty and a powerful family and is the most unhappy creature in the world.
Anne Turner has wit and talent but no stage on which to display them. Little stands between her and the abyss of destitution.
When these two very different women meet in the strangest of circumstances, a powerful friendship is sparked. Frankie sweeps Anne into a world of splendour that exceeds all she imagined- a Court whose foreign king is a stranger to his own subjects; where ancient families fight for power, and where the sovereign's favourite may rise and rise so long as he remains in favour.
With the marriage of their talents, Anne and Frankie enter this extravagant, savage hunting ground, seeking a little happiness for themselves. But as they gain notice, they also gain enemies; what began as a search for love and safety leads to desperate acts that could cost them everything.

(big & bold-) Based on the true scandal that rocked the court of James I, A Net for Small Fishes is the most gripping novel you'll read this year- an exhilarating dive into the pitch-dark waters of the Jacobean court.
