Not up to usual standards
I have read all of Ms Gregories books about the Tudor family and I was disappointed in this one. I had wondered for years about Mary Queen of Scots but I had trouble being very interested in this. It was easy to start and stop not coming back for weeks at a time. I felt that there was very little history involved and didn't learn anything about Mary. Will think before getting another book like this.

I find this time period fascinating, but after reading The Other Boleyn Girl, I must admit my expectations were not very high. I was hoping for a fuller story of Mary. Her time in captivity is rather dull actually, and with the exception of a few intrigues and plots, not much happened. Mary's younger life is more interesting- trying to avoid Henry VIII by marrying a prince of France, then having him die, not to mention all the drama when she was pregnant with James and had to be rushed to the castle from Hollyrood and protected from her own husband... all that excitement and not much was mentioned in the book. It's a basic story, but if it's you're first time learning of the Scottish queen it could be enjoyable.
