About the Author

Margaret George is the author of The Autobiography of Henry VIII, The Memoirs of Cleopatra, and Elizabeth I, among other novels. Margaret first got the idea to write historical fiction when, after reading numerous books that viewed Henry VIII through the eyes of his enemies and victims, she found herself wondering if there might be another side to the story. She became determined to let Henry speak for himself, and it took fifteen years, about three hundred books of background reading, three visits to England to see every extant building associated with Henry, and five handwritten drafts for her to answer the question: What was Henry really like? Margaret was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and has traveled extensively. She and her husband live in Madison, Wisconsin.

From Our Editors

Originally published in 1992, Margaret George's novel of the Stuart queen became a national bestseller and solidly established the author as one of the foremost historical novelists of our time. Reissued to coincide with George's third novel, "The Memoirs of Cleopatra", this superb blend of history and storytelling turns the magnificent facts of the life of Mary, Queen of Scots into magnificent fiction

"George has creative a lively, gallant Mary of intelligence, charm and terrible judgment...A popular, readable, inordinately moving tribute to a remarkable queen." --Kirkus Reviews (starred)
