Mary Queen Of Scotland And The Isles

by Margaret George

Mary Queen Of Scotland And The Isles Synopsis

Mary, Queen of Scotland and the Isles is the story of a woman born to rule a nation - and the glorious pageant of love and tragedy that followed in her wake. Mary's beauty inspired poetry - yet her birthright engendered hideous treachery and terrible, bloody murder. This novel is Margaret George's magnificent recreation of the life of one of history's greatest legends. A woman accused of murdering her husband to marry her lover. A woman who became Queen six days after her birth in 1542 - only to be beheaded forty years later on the orders of her cousin, Elizabeth I . . .
