Mary, Queen of Scots’ marriage to the Earl of Bothwell is notorious. Less known is Bothwell’s first wife, Jean Gordon, who extricated herself from their marriage and survived the intrigue of the Queen’s court. Daughters of the North reframes this turbulent period in history by focusing on Jean, who became Countess of Sutherland: the most powerful woman in the north.
“Reading like a literary House of Cards – and packed with the drama of 16th century power, wealth, romance, and more – Daughters of the North will appeal to anyone with a passion for partisan intrigue.” ~Celtic Life International
