really liked it

Jane Dunn writes about the complex relationship between Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots. As neighboring regnant queens, they might have been great allies, but instead they remained distant rivals. Although they were cousins and they engaged in a lively correspondence, the two women never met. This history is well researched and quite readable. Dunn captures the excitement and drama that swirled around both women and brings both Mary and Elizabeth to life with her atmospheric description and keen insight.
