    DescriptionMary Queen of Scots passed her childhood in France and married the Dauphin to become Queen of France at the age of sixteen. Widowed less than two years later, she returned to Scotland as Queen after an absence of thirteen years. Her life then entered its best known phase: the early struggles with John Knox, and the unruly Scottish nobility; the fatal marriage to Darnley and his mysterious death; her marriage to Bothwell, the chief suspect, that led directly to her long English captivity at the hands of Queen Elizabeth; the poignant and extraordinary story of her long imprisonment that ended with the labyrinthine Babington plot to free her, and her execution at the age of forty-four.

    Review quote
    Antonia Fraser is deservedly regarded by many as one of today's finest biographers. Listening to the new cd recording of an abridged version of Fraser's biography, Mary Queen of Scots, reminded me just how good she is. The opening and closing music immediately helps create the period, and this coupled with Patricia Hodge's excellent narration, to my mind, is a shining example of how the audio book can surpass it's print counterpart. -- Vidar Hjardeng IN TOUCH, BBC Radio 4 This is traditional history at its best. OBSERVER "[This is] the very best of histories, full of facts conveyed with warmth rather than dryness and Patricia Hodge is the most perfect reader." DAILY EXPRESS You won't find a more thoroughly researched or better-written book about history's most romantic royal, the beautiful, intelligent, accomplished, headstrong, fun-loving, doomed Mary Stuart.
