Queen of Scots

Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary... Stuart. The gloves were taken off in this portrayal of Mary; the 'real person' emerges from the descriptions of her personal life, the events that shaped it, and some of the reasons behind the actions of herself and her courtiers. Mary comes out looking stronger than ever, but having the same general human weaknesses that people have. How she coped with her world is wonderfully displayed in this book.
