really liked it
Read in June, 2011

This was my first Queen Mary book. I had little knowledge of her, other than what I saw on The Tudors and had read online. I thought that this was a very good book as far as explaining who Queen Mary was and what she had endured throughout her life. If this was the only thing that I knew about her, I would never truly grasp why she was referred to as Bloody Mary. This book does make me want to read more to understand her better and why historically she is so disliked as a Queen. This book almost candy coated her actions.

All in all, this would be a great book for a light, Tudor fan read. A tip of the iceburg, if you will. If you do not really want to dive into the specifics of what she did, but, rather a glimpse into who she was, this would be a great book for you. But, I will want to read more books about her, because my interest has been peaked.
