Publisher's Summary

Scotland has been torn apart by civil war, and the young and passionate Catholic Mary Queen of Scots is in the hands of her enemies. Under duress, Mary abdicates in favour of her son, James VI, and flees to England for safety, boldly seeking refuge with her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. But Elizabeth has never trusted the ambitious Catholic queen and has Mary imprisoned. So begins the treacherous battle between two of history's most powerful and ruthless women. Without once meeting her cousin, Mary is held captive for 19 years, whilst Elizabeth rules in the shadow of countless Catholic plots against her life.

Chock full of facts!

This historical novel is jam packed with the main life events of Mary Queen of Scots all dramatised for the listener to take in easily. I haven't read any Jean Plaidy for years. Now I have I can't think why. It's as fresh today as it was 40 years ago and could have been written yesterday.
