Reviews

"A book that will leave few readers unmoved."-San Francisco Chronicle

"She was sometimes reviled as a scheming whore, sometimes revered as a misunderstood martyr. But she was invariably regarded as fascinating. Antonia Fraser's richly readable biography demonstrates that Mary's great fascination continues unabated."--Time

"Compassionate, illuminating, rich in human interest."--The New York Times

"One of the most fascinating figures in history." --The Columbus Dispatch

"With grace, sensitivity, and a sharp eye for detail, lady Antonia Fraser has succeeded not only in recapturing the real Mary from the symbol but also in illuminating the chaotic age in which she lived."--Newsweek
