Galliard by Margaret Irwin

Book Description

Queen of Scotland at six days old. Queen of France at seventeen years old. A widow at eighteen. The young and trusting Mary, Queen of Scots, is sailing home to her kingdom after years in exile. The danger from her cousin, the English Queen, has not lessened since then. Religious divides threaten to tear the nation apart and, across the border, Elizabeth keenly watches this new threat to her throne. Amid the furious turmoil and uncertainty in her Scottish kingdom, Mary finds she has one loyal servant James Hepburn, Earl of Bothwell, a glorious, rash and hazardous young man known to all as the Galliard. In Bothwell s courage and love for her, Mary finds serenity, and though fate works against them, no force can conquer their spirit. This stunning novel from the acclaimed author of Young Bess breathes new life into the little known story of the great love of Mary, Queen of Scots."

This is a peep at this, our, London so that it appears as the iridescent scene of a pantomime or holiday charade. What happened behind the door at which one had to knock four times? Many incongruous happenings, but chiefly an attack on other doors to make them open wide to the rash young adventurer Dicky.

Elizabeth, Captive Princess by Margaret Irwin Elizabeth, Captive Princess, Paperback (February 2013)

In July, 1553, sibling rivalry has never been more tumultuous than between the daughters of King Henry VIII. Queen Mary Tudor has just won possession of the throne, but her half-sister - the Princess Elizabeth - holds the hearts of the people. Knowing this, Mary banishes her to a country retreat, determined to keep her as far away from court life.

Young Bess by Margaret Irwin Young Bess, Paperback (February 2013)

Young Princess Elizabeth has learnt to be on the watch for political games. After her father's death, Elizabeth sets up home with Henry's last wife, Katherine Parr, and her new husband, Tom Seymour.
