Description
The political and religious conflicts between Queen Elizabeth I and the doomed Mary, Queen of Scots, have for centuries captured our imagination and inspired memorable dramas played out on stage and screen and in opera. Jane Dunn's vivid double biography captures the queens' formidable strengths and the exquisite texture of their rivalry, spurred on by the ambitions and machinations of the forceful men who surrounded them. Against the backdrop of 16th-century England, Scotland, and France, Dunn portrays Protestant Elizabeth, the bastard daughter of Anne Boleyn, glowing with executive ability and a visionary energy as bright as her red hair. Mary, the Catholic successor whom England's rivals wished to see on the throne, is charming, feminine, and deeply persuasive.

"A perceptive, suspenseful account of complex English history.... By the end of this satisfying book, one feels sympathy for both women, brave queens in an age when 'no one considered that a woman could effectively rule alone'." NYTBR
