Title: A Rope of Sand. A Novel About Mary Queen of Scots
Description: London England, Sidgewick & Jackson Ltd, 1965. First Edition, Binding: Cloth, Good/Fair. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall Hardback Scotland in those days was a man's country. And for the girl who had briefly been Queen of France, the young Catholic widow brought up to the elegance and sophistication of the French court, this return to feuding, warlike Scotland of the Covenant was a bitter and lonely homecoming. Scottsh politics was a web of deceit and intrgue, for the Scottish chieftans were proud and jealous men and they resented every threat to their independence. They resented, too, the authority of a woman. Slight foxing to end pages. A couple of pen marks to inside cover. Some wear and tear to D/J.
