The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

In a story that glows with the color of Mary Stuart's personality and times, Marian King tells of Scotland's young queen from the sixth day of her life when she inherits her country's crown to the proud return from France to her native Scotland.

Mary Stuart was just five and a half when she left Scotland for France. In spite of the dangers from her English enemies, she traveled safely to Paris, to the most exciting and elegant court in Europe. Here King Henri II ranked her above his own daughters, and planned to marry her to his son. But Europe was not a peaceful place, and many were jealous of the beautiful girl who danced, dressed and acted like the queen she was. Enemies even in her own household tried to betray her and to prevent her happy marriage.

Here is a biography that has been written with infinite care and research. With great skill the author has brought to life her heroine, without ever departing from historical fact. This fascinating story of a courageous girl, who was also a queen, will be absorbing reading for the teen-age girl.
