Queen Mary's Daughter

There are so many possibilities that affect the course of history. One change, one small item overlooked, can make a world of difference, not only in a person's life, but in the history and well-being of an entire nation. And then there are those multiple scenarios of what if? 

What if King James VI of Scotland didn't succeed in amalgamating Scotland with England? What if there had been another heir to the throne of Scotland? One who would secure its independence? Would Scotland have remained free and independent and a nation of its own well into the twenty-first century? And would Scotland, this independent version, make its own decision to join the European Union when its southern neighbor was choosing to pull away?

"Queen Mary's Daughter" presents another plausible timeline, one that incorporates both historical fact and fiction with the endless possibilities of time travel.

This book is suitable to YA audiences but adults will appreciate it as well. The writing is clean and uncomplicated but the story has twists that may surprise you. 
Mary Elizabeth is devastated to lose the grandmother that raised her. Gran's final words were to trace her roots "before it is too late." An heirloom ring given to Mary Elizabeth on her sixteenth birthday is crucial. Mary travels to Scotland thinking she has only two weeks to do the digging but the action and suspense begin far sooner. 
Mixing facts within the fiction, this book takes a look at the political upheavals of the sixteenth century but adds a futuristic interpretation to what whould happen if it were possible to change events. Exciting and different from other time travels books or TV shows.
