Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0152061886, Hardcover)Mary Stuart was just five years old when she was sent to France to be raised alongside
her future husband. But when the frail young king dies, eighteen-year-old Mary is
stripped of her title as Queen of France and set adrift in the harsh world, alone.
Determined to reign over what is rightfully hers, Mary returns to Scotland. Hoping
that a husband will help her secure the coveted English throne, she marries again,
but the love and security she longs for elude her. Instead, the fiery young queen finds
herself embroiled in a murder scandal that could cost her the crown. And her attempts
to bargain with her formidable “sister queen,” Elizabeth I of England, could cost her
her very life.
