Dear Librarians,

From the day I signed up for my first library card I've always been fascinated by anything—fiction or nonfiction—about Mary Queen of Scots. Now I've written my own sweeping historical novel set in Queen Mary's Scotland, and I hope your patrons will love reading it as much as I loved writing it.

A silver letter-casket (yes, that casket), secret quatrains of Nostradamus, assassinations and court intrigues, and a girl with the ancient gift of divining the future in flowers—NYT bestselling author Karleen Koen calls it "spellbinding" and "lovely."

I hope you'll settle in with a cup of tea and some Scottish shortbread and enjoy the story!
