Brilliant

Loved it, a brilliant and historically accurate story of Mary Queen of Scots and brilliant narrating. I couldn't stop listening.
Now on to the next one, which is about her imprisoned life for 19 years.

Really Enjoyed it

I really enjoyed this book. however i wish i had read this one first, then the "Captive Queen of Scots" which follows on straight away.
the naration is great, very easy and engaging way to learn about history.
