Overview

"Before returning to Scotland, Scottish reformers and her country's rebellious nobles had openly plotted to depose Mary. But with the political revolution heating up, and the hatred of the Protestants for Catholicism, they agreed to her return. As a ruler Mary issued several proclamations of religious tolerance - the first edicts of toleration in Scotland or Britain." "Despite harsh attacks by Protestant reformer John Knox, Mary refused to abandon her Roman Catholicism. But when she later scandalously married the Protestant Bothwell, widely suspected of murdering her second husband and English cousin Darnley, outraged Scots flew to arms. Mary surrendered and was compelled to abdicate in favor of her infant son James VI (later James I of England)." She escaped and fled to England. Seeking Elizabeth's protection, Mary was unwelcome by her cousin as a threat to the English throne, She became Elizabeth's prisoner and was suspected of involvement in several ill-fated plots against Elizabeth with English Catholics and others. Charged with treason, Mary was brought to trial, convicted, and executed.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Mary Stuart (1542-87) is too often portrayed as a ruthless seeker of power or a dupe in the hands of other who are, a literary foil to Good Queen Bess, says Schaefer. She takes issues, describing a saint and martyr, remarkable leader, religious visionary, poet, and woman of letters. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Historical Fiction at its Best

    Mary Queen of Scots by Carol Schaefer was a great find! Epic tale told in intimate terms. I loved Mary and prayed for her deliverance even though I knew the truth of her fate. The language was lyrical, befitting a queen. I stayed with the story like the telling of a true friend's life. I recommend it highly as a gift for family and friends. A discerning reader will truly appreciate the quality of this little gem.I hope Carol Schaeffer contributes soon to the world of fact and fantasy which I love to inhabit in my precious quiet times.

    Spellbinding Biography/Historical Novel

    My eyes grew big as I read MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS by Carol Schaefer. Ms. Schaefer's eloquent language, combined with an 'at the edge of your seat' story-line, gave me chills. I never knew reading a biography could be this entralling.
