Publisher's Summary

Mary is Queen of Scotland but has been forced to flee her land and take refuge in an England that is ruled by her cousin Elizabeth. But England, precarious in its Protestant state, doesn't need a charismatic Catholic figurehead at large. So Elizabeth's chief advisor, Cecil, devises a plan in which Mary will live under guard with his trusted accomplice: Bess of Hardwick. Bess is a self-made woman, a shrewd survivor. She is newly married to her fourth and most distinguished husband, the Earl of Shrewsbury. But what marriage can withstand the charms of Mary? Or the threat of rebellion that she always carries?

A good book for a long drive...

I found this historical fiction fairly easy to listen to. there were 3 narrators and the story line was decently paced. I did find the voice, and accent, of Queen Mary fairly irritating. she had an odd french accent.
