Publisher's Summary

Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox. Royal Tudor blood ran in her veins. Her mother was a Queen, her father an Earl, and she herself was the granddaughter, niece, cousin and grandmother of monarchs.
Beautiful and tempestuous, she created scandal not just once but twice by falling in love with unsuitable men. Fortunately the marriage arranged for her turned into a love match.

"[Weir] has a good eye for period detail – and her re-creation of the late 15th century domestic and ceremonial world is terrific." (Sunday Time)

Wonderful Alison Weir

This is yet another success for Alison Weir. It is typical of her biographies in that it is well researched, well written, and full of the interesting detail which brings a protagonist to life. The life of Margaret Lennox, the lost Tudor princess, is at least as interesting as the life of any of the more famous Tudors - you would certainly have to go a long way to find anyone who experienced more intrigue, more of the twists and turns of fate, or more disappointments and grief. A lot of what Margaret Tudor wrote is quoted and this adds immediacy and poignancy to her story. Maggie Mash is her usual wonderful self as narrator – really pleasant to listen to, and great with voices, accents, and pronunciation of foreign words. Her readings from the Devonshire Manuscript are an absolute delight - perfect! If you like Alison Weir you’ll enjoy this book.

- Robyn "Avid reader of history, biography, and true crime."

Interesting book, horrible narration.

The story of Margaret Douglas is an interesting one, and one I hadn't been aware of before picking up this book. Unfortunately, I was unable to finish it. The narrator has a pleasant enough reading voice, but for some reason she feels the need to turn every quotation- even a single quoted word- into a performance piece. The rhythm of the book is constantly interrupted while the reader pauses, and then launches in to her imitations of various (mostly male) characters. At times it's unintentionally funny, but mostly it's just plain awful.

Narrators certainly have to differentiate the words of the various characters in the books they read for us- but this kind of over the top play-acting is extremely annoying! Please- just read us the book!
