ELIZABETH AND MARY Cousins, Rivals, Queens

by | Read by Isla Blair

History • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

This historical novel looks at the relationship between Queen Elizabeth of England and Mary Queen of Scots. The book explores the different views of both women in a time when men were the dominant sex. Elizabeth chooses to marry her country, and Mary chooses to marry men who could improve her position. With a queenly voice, Isla Blair reads letters between the two queens, historical quotes, and pertinent pieces of information. She creates excellent dialogue when necessary, although this is mainly narrative. Her best renditions are Scottish accents for some of the men in the story. An informative novel is presented in a way that everyone can enjoy. J.F.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
