Full description for The Other Queen
New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory brings to life one of history's most misunderstood heroines in a vivid tale of love, ambition, and jealousy--now from Encore.A heroine everyone recognizes but few truly know, Mary Queen of Scots is remembered mostly for her death on the scaffold than for her turbulent, romantic life. In The Other Queen, Philippa Gregory resurrects Mary and her world by way of a chapter from her life that is all but forgotten: Mary's long imprisonment as a "guest" of the Earl of Shrewsbury and his wife, Bess of Hardwick. With the earl and his wife, whose fortune and marriage are jeopardized by the extraordinary woman under their charge, Gregory has found the perfect means for understanding Mary herself, a queen who will lie, seduce, plot, and sacrifice the lives of thousands in her quest to regain her Scots throne--and to take over Queen Elizabeth's.
