Antonia Fraser is deservedly regarded by many as one of today's finest biographers. Listening to the new cd recording of an abridged version of Fraser's biography, Mary Queen of Scots, reminded me just how good she is. The opening and closing music immediately helps create the period, and this coupled with Patricia Hodge's excellent narration, to my mind, is a shining example of how the audio book can surpass it's print counterpart. - IN TOUCH, BBC Radio 4 - Vidar HjardengThis is traditional history at its best. - OBSERVER[This is] the very best of histories, full of facts conveyed with warmth rather than dryness and Patricia Hodge is the most perfect reader. - DAILY EXPRESSYou won't find a more thoroughly researched or better-written book about history's most romantic royal, the beautiful, intelligent, accomplished, headstrong, fun-loving, doomed Mary Stuart. - GUARDIAN
