Bess is a self-made woman, a shrewd survivor. She is newly married to her fourth and most distinguished husband, the Earl of Shrewsbury. But what marriage can withstand the charms of Mary? Or the threat of rebellion that she always carries? Mary must wait in her privileged imprisonment for the return to Scotland and her infant son; but waiting is not the same as doing nothing....
With her characteristic combination of superb storytelling and authentic historical background, Philippa Gregory brings to life this period of great change, in a riveting tale of betrayal, loyalty, politics, and passion.

It was quite interesting but not as gripping or engaging as other of her books.

Not such a sink-gripper
I'm a massive fan of Dr Gregory's work - at times a gripping plot development will have me gripping the kitchen sink. The story of Mary Queen of Scots is fascinating, infuriating and tragic, but this audio book isn't No 1 on my Gregory list. Bianca Amato is an excellent reader but Ms Doninczyk's contribution was irritating. I'm sure she's an excellent actress but her French accent would do credit to Peter Sellers's Inspector Clouseau. A native French actress would probably have been a better choice, sorry! I probably won't listen to this item in my library more than once - as I normally do - I'll probably use the printed version.
