4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the more enthusiastic Mary fans. 5 Jun 2001
By Kayleigh Jamison - Published on Amazon.com
This book is short, but packed full of information. I would not recommend it for anyone unfamiliar with Mary Queen of Scots, however, as it demands a basic historical knowledge from the reader, in order for it to be appreciated. If you've an idea of what Mary was about, though, and want to learn more about this turning point in her life, I would definately suggest this book as a good place to start. Lewis accurately portrays all sides of the event, including those which have little historical evidence to support them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Lewis's 'Mary Queen Of Scots' 29 Mar 2001
By Zeeboid - Published on Amazon.com
This is a wonderfully written text. I was forced to read it for a class and ended up keeping it because it was a steady/easy read with more then enough information then was needed for class work. Lewis does a great job of convening a lot of the trials and tribulations of Mary. Highly suggested if you have a class and need something to study up on, have a report on Mary, or just want a book that talks about Mary, Queen of Scots without the tone of a boring history teacher.
