Today I'll be discussing this book that discusses this queen's life through the historical fiction genre.

The best book so far I have read among biographies of Mary Queen of Scots. Well researched, a perfect blend of fiction and historical prose, of which history prevails. A touching love-story between Mary and Bothwell moves you to tears (I am the one who strongly opposes the version of historians in which Mary has been raped by Bothwell)/5.

She was cool and quick thinker in a physical crisis, such as the Riccio murder and her own escapes—but not in politics, where she was unable to read character.
