Scottish history. The granddaughter of King James IV and his wife
Margaret Tudor, Queen Mary’s status as heiress-apparent to Queen
Elizabeth’s throne in England paired with the violence of the
Scottish Reformation set the stage for one of the most dramatic and
poorly understood lives of the 16th century.
reign as queen of Scotland, celebrating her life more than her death
and showing us all why she was truly a woman ahead of her time.
translations, and the lyrics to all four featured period songs
performed in the book.
This is a very quick and brief historical book pertaining to Mary Queen of Scots. I am not sure what age group is published for but I would definitely say it is geared towards school age children and it will certainly give them a great insight to Mary’s life, told in a easy read way without making history seem boring.
There is no doubt that the author has done a tremendous amount of research on this subject, which is clear when you are reading the story. There is also a timeline of events from just before Mary was born, throughout her life to her death, which is a great reference guide.
This would be a good book to get you interested in her story and want you to do more in depth research into her life – being a Queen to a country when you are living hundred of miles away must have been hard for her as well as for us Scots!
