I enjoy reading about the kings and queens of old, and was excited about this novel about the little known Queen Margaret of Scotland. Author D.L. Bogdan does a wonderful job of taking her readers deep into the heart of the English royal family, with all the scandals, machinations, and drama that they are so famous for. There is romance, adventure, mystery and a bit of humor throughout this tale that along with a fast-moving plot and a great cast of characters makes this book a great read.
This story of the strong and brave Margaret was captivating, and I think anyone who has an interest in English history, the Tudors, and royalty will be enthralled with this fascinating story.
