This dazzling novel from a "New York Times"-bestselling author presents a new and unique view of one of history''s most intriguing, romantic, and maddening heroines--Mary, Queen of Scots.
From the Publisher:
The best-selling author of The Other Boleyn Girl presents a tale based on the life of Mary Queen of Scots that follows her extended imprisonment as a "guest" of the Earl of Shrewsbury and her calculated, often ruthless plans to reclaim her throne while wresting power from Queen Elizabeth. Reprint.

Now in paperback from ?the queen of royal fiction? (USA TODAY) Philippa Gregory? a unique novel about the intriguing, romantic, and maddening mary Queen of scots.

For years Philippa Gregory's readers have been asking her to write a novel about Mary Queen of Scots?a request she now fulfills with a tale as engrossing as any she has ever written. A heroine everyone recognizes but few truly know, Mary Queen of Scots is remembered mostly for her death on the scaffold than for her turbulent, romantic life. In The Other Queen, Philippa Gregory resurrects Mary and her world by way of a chapter from her life that is all but forgotten: Mary's long imprisonment as a ?guest? of the Earl of Shrewsbury and his wife, Bess of Hardwick. With the earl and his wife, whose fortune and marriage are jeopardized by the extraordinary woman under their charge, Gregory has found the perfect means for understanding Mary herself, a queen who will lie, seduce, plot, and sacrifice the lives of thousands in her quest to regain her Scots throne?and to take over Queen Elizabeth's.

The best-selling author of The Other Boleyn Girl presents a tale based on the life of Mary Queen of Scots that follows her extended imprisonment as a "guest" of the Earl of Shrewsbury and her calculated, often ruthless plans to reclaim her throne while wresting power from Queen Elizabeth. Reprint.

Annotation:
Philippa Gregory (THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL) turns her attention to Mary Queen of Scots in her latest wonderfully realized historical novel. Mary has been sentenced by her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I, to live confined to the estate of the Earl of Shrewsbury and his wife Bess of Hardwick. These three nobles narrate the plots and power struggles as Mary schemes for 16 years on how to usurp her cousin and claim the throne.

Praise

"The voices are strong throughout, but Gregory's ventriloquism is at its best with Bess of Hardwick, a woman who managed to throw off the restrictions of birth, class and sex in order to achieve things that proved beyond her titled husband." (starred review) 05/05/2008
