New Release, The Memoirs of Mary Queen of Scots by Carolly Erickson

Released on September 1st, 2009

I just love Erickson's books, they never are a let down, and I tend to devourer her books. I have already read her other books, The Secret Life of Josephine, The Last Wife of Henry VIII, and The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette. All of which were excellent books.

Born Queen of Scotland, married as a girl to the invalid young King of France, Mary took the reins of the unruly kingdom of Scotland as a young widow and fought to keep her throne. A second marriage to her handsome but dissolute cousin Lord Darnley ended in murder and scandal, while a third to the dashing Lord Bothwell, the love of her life, gave her joy but widened the scandal and surrounded her with enduring ill repute.
Unable to rise above the violence and disorder that swirled around her, Mary escaped to Englandonly to find herself a prisoner of her ruthless, merciless cousin Queen Elizabeth.
Here, in her own riveting account, is the enchanting woman whose name still evokes excitement and compassionand whose death under the headsman’s axe still draws forth our sorrow.


  1. Cool - have to check this one out and see what she does with Mary!

  2. Do you like the cover? I like that she has stuck to a theme for her covers.
