it was amazing

Wow! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading biographies and/or history...or actually anyone. Although a biography and full of history, this book is a comfortable read. Guy seems to have done his research and presents a new look at Mary, Queen of Scots. I felt for Mary and the troubled times of her life. The only downside is the number of characters. Guy definitely tries to help the reader with maps, family trees, timelines, and other notes. He also does a good job of reminding the reader of who people are when they reappear after a long stretch, but a list of characters with their real names and titles would have helped. Otherwise, a great book.
