Scotland has been torn apart by civil war, and the young and passionate Catholic Mary Queen of Scots is in the hands of her enemies. Under duress, Mary abdicates in favour of her son, James VI, and flees to England for safety, boldly seeking refuge with her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. But Elizabeth has never trusted the ambitious Catholic queen and has Mary imprisoned.

So begins the treacherous battle between two of history's most powerful and ruthless women. Without once meeting her cousin, Mary is held captive for 19 years, whilst Elizabeth rules in the shadow of countless Catholic plots against her life. Download and start listening now!

    " A dim depressing business, Mary Queen of Scots' captivity - for whatever character flaws Mary may have had, she is depicted with compassion. I think Jean Plaidy did an excellent job with this one, making a dreary story entertaining and suspenseful even as we know the ending. "

    " Well written, but for me, too many details for and ending well known. "

    " Ugh. Poor writing, and little character development by page 100. Not worth finishing. "

    " This was one of the first books I have read that wasnt praising Elizabeth. I have never been a fan of Elizabeth(maybe thats why i cant get through allison weir's book) and this book showed her true colors. I have always liked the story of Mary and have felt for her in many books. "
