Two Queens One Future (previously known as My Heart is My Own) by John Guy, HarperCollins, 2019, 667 pages
Now a major film, this is a dramatic reassessment of the life of Mary Queen of Scots by one of the leading historians of this period. At eighteen years old, Mary was the widow of a king of France, queen of Scotland by inheritance, and had a credible claim to the throne of England should Elizabeth I die without issue. This is the story of a fraught and dangerous relationship between two women of incredible power and charisma. Previously published as My Heart is My Own.
