Fabulous book is this. I can't get enough, personally, and re-read it constantly. Good literature, every detail is perfect and correct, and is thrilling in the tale of Mary Queen of Scots and her ovverrated quest to steal back her country's hearts long after they left her and moved on, and steal Englands as well. It results well, is magnicent and a strong clever read for pre-teens and early teenagers, like myself. I enjoyed it, YOU will enjoy it - so just go and buy it now! A good gift, or just a lazy rainy day read. Fantasic!
Whispered conversations and strange visits make Kitty wonder if something important is about to happen, and she tells her new diary all about it. Unlike her cousin, Kathryn, Kitty hates sewing and mending, so she and her little dog Pawpaw escape as often as they can, to go for walks with cousin Edmund who knows a lot about the prisoners in The Tower, because his dad is the Tower physician. Kitty and Edmund sneak off to watch gruesome executions, pick up dead cats and eat cakes in the street markets. And all the while, momentous historical events roll by. It’s all in Kitty’s diary: blood and gore, love and hatred, honesty and deceit. Even if you’re not that interested in history, this book is a brilliant read, and you’ll enjoy it even more, if you first read its predecessor - Bloody Tower - the diary Kitty’s mother wrote when she was Kitty’s age.
