The Passion of Marie by Annette Loiselle
Mary Queen of Scots is caught in an act of treason, which may force Elizabeth I to finally execute her. Alone in her prison, during imagined red wine sessions with Elizabeth, as the scaffold is being built, she re-lives significant episodes with her husbands, Darnley and Bothwell, her son James, her friend Riccio and the births of her babies. She sets out to prove she is not a murderer, but a woman of passion and a leader of vision, but Mary needs redemption not just for the sins she has been accused of, but the sin she has never confessed…..until now.
