Customer Review

on 12 September 2001
Mary Stuart, who is most commonly known as Mary the queen of Scots, had to flee to France at a young age. She spent her youth at the frivolous french court and because of this she felt and behaved like a french woman for the rest of her life, something which met with a lot of disapproval later in her life.
Royal Road To Fotheringay tells of young Mary's childhood and early adolesence. She grew up as the king's darling and she fell in love with the Dauphin, who she later married. Everything was going well, until she was once again forced to flee.
She went back to Scotland, a land she found very dour and grim. A land where it was considered a sin to be happy and dance and where her clothes and her behaviour was frowned upon.
Back in Scotland she married the weak Darnley, mismatch from the start, but after being raped by the a villain called Bothwell, she somehow ended up falling passionately in love with this man and this shaped the rest of her life.
I have read all of Jean Plaidy's books and I particularly like the beautiful Mary Queen of Scots series. If you like this book, you should also read "The Captive Queen Of Scots" which is the concluding book in this series.
