Kate Williams Rival Queens
A scintillating and elegant fusion of royal biography and political thriller Rival Queens tells the story of Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I of England, two powerful monarchs on a single island, surrounded by sycophants, spies and detractors, accosted for their dominion, their favour and their bodies. Besieged by secret plots, devastating betrayals and a terrible final act only one queen could survive to rule all.
