Jean Plaidy makes historical fiction so interesting - I love her series on the Queens/Other Notable Historical Personages of England. This one is about Maragaret Tudor, who was sent to Scotland to marry one of the Stuarts, and her story there. I quite enjoyed this because I knew so little about Margaret - most of the stories about the Tudors, if they focus on any of the sisters at all - always are about Mary, and her marrying Charles Brandon without asking Henry. So, it was very cool to finally have something focusing elsewhere. Fun, easy read that actually feels like I learned something. Hurrah!
