Born Marie Stuart at Linlithgow Palace in 7th December 1542, she inherited the English throne at a mere six days old and almost immediately became the focus of opposing factions, desperate to control her.
This is a wonderfully researched fictionalised account of her life. We also see Mary Queen of Scots through the eyes of Nathan, a pedlar and seller of embroidery threads, who first sets his eyes on the queen as an infant being crowned at Stirling Castle. He follows her life, being one of the many who are drawn to her, and becomes more closely involved in her life than a mere pedlar could possibly imagine....
