This review is from: The Flower Reader (Paperback)
I enjoyed this authors other novel 'The Second Duchess'. But this book was wonderful. I am from Edinburgh amd know all the places that the Queen and her court travel too well. This was atmospheric with a permanent level of intrigue and danger. Just how many people are after Mary of Guises box and how far will they go to get it.?
Wonderful characters in Mairi and her family. She is a feisty woman, and her character echoes that of Mary Queen of Scots.
One mistake though. Mary has at least two baths in this. She never bathed but once a year. And then in white burgundy wine! True!
