Publisher's Summary

England and Scotland in the 1500s. Two famous queens: Mary, the Catholic Queen of Scots, and Elizabeth I, the Protestant Queen of England. It was an exciting and a dangerous time to be alive - and to be a queen. Mary was Queen of Scotland when she was one week old. At 16, she was also Queen of France. She was tall and beautiful, with red-gold hair. Many men loved her and died for her. But she also had many enemies - men who said: "The death of Mary is the life of Elizabeth."

Z grade narration

Way. To. Stilted. To. Tolerate. Unbearable narration, hard to believe its been made by a professional. I love the life story of Mary Queen of Scots but this book is spoilt by rediculous narration.
