    Inhaltsangabe

    A stunning new unabridged recording, available on audio download. A dramatic novel of passion, politics and betrayal from the number one best-selling author of The Other Boleyn Girl

    1568. Mary Queen of Scots, fleeing rebellion in her kingdom, is offered a safe haven by Elizabeth I with George Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, and his indomitable wife, Bess of Hardwick. The arrival of an extravagent queen turns the household upside down, as it becomes clear that the visit is a house arrest.   

    Queen Mary makes Bess’ hard-won house a centre for unrest and treason, and - perhaps worst of all - Mary Queen of Scots’ fabled beauty starts to work on the Tudor loyalist, Bess’ own husband, George.   

    The two women fight for their own rights: Mary to regain the crown and the kingdom of Scotland; Bess to win back her husband and houses. A third woman can decide: Elizabeth the First, and nobody knows how far she will go to protect her own safety.   

    With an exclusive afterword written and read by Philippa Gregory, exploring the inspiration behind The Other Queen.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Written from instinct, not out of calculation, and it shows." (Peter Ackroyd, The Times)

    "For sheer pace and percussive drama it will take a lot of beating." (Sunday Times

    "Gregory is great at conjuring a Tudor film-set of gorgeous gowns and golden-lattered dining. She invokes some swoonsome images...while the politics are personal enough to remain pertinent." (Daily Telegraph
