    I read this book and loved it.
    Hated to see it end.

  • Good Reading! Jun 12, 2009
    by mawillia

    I am a great fan on Ms. Gregory's writing. I have been especially fond on the books written on Elizabeth 1, Anne Boleyn, Mary Queen of Scots, and Catherine of Aragon. I love her period detail which she fleshes out with her intelligent characters and story lines.

  • A look into the Elizabethean Monarchy Feb 9, 2009
    by Auldphart

    Good historical accuracy combined with a look into the personalities and beliefs of the times. Using a different character's voice for each chapter really brought the era to life. At first you see Mary Stewart as a very sympathetic character and only slowly do you begin through her interactions, to see her as an amoral, abusive,manipulative, and dangerous "Beep". A great read and good bit of history in an accessable form.

  • Which Queen? Sep 30, 2008
    by donna

    Mary,Queen of Scots, was only 26 years old when she crossed the Scottish border into England to seek the help of her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. What she received was life imprisonment simply because of who she was. Her jailors, on Elizabeth's behalf, were a newly married couple - Bess of Hardwick and The Earl of Shrewsbury. These three form the basis of a triangle that would have a tremendous impact on the rest of their lives. Philippa Gregory uses these circumstances to craft a passionate tale of love, loyalty and honor which is a delight to read

  • The Jewel in Philippa Gregory's Crown Aug 14, 2008
    by Kitsy52

    I have been a big fan of Philippa Gregory for years. I have read all her books and given them as gifts to friends and family. I read this book in one night. It is truly "the Jewel in her Writing Crown". It shows three people, including Queen Mary, and what they want through during Mary's imprisonment in England. It is a completely new look at Mary's life and her effect on others. Brilliantly done. Buy it as soon as you can. You will want to give it to your family and friends. You will also want to read it over and over. BRAVO!!!
