Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Queen of France at sixteen and widowed at eighteen, Mary Stuart defies pressure to remarry and instead, returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I. Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence.
Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. But betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.
