Everyone loves a good story and Linda Finlayson is a very, very good story-teller. At the Mercy of Kings is about a young woman, Mary of Orange, a princess who put her faith in God and found that he kept all his promises even when her world turned upside down.-- Irene Howat
Linda Finlayson has written, with her usual flair, another fascinating and gripping biography. Mary Stuart, the female half of William and Mary, was a shadowy figure of some significance in English history Her story provides helpful insights into the position of women of class in the Seventeenth Century and how Britain's Protestant identity was maintained. Mary's was a life early marked by tragedy and death, faced withunusual courage. This biography tells her story in a convincing and gripping style.-- A. Donald MacLeod
