Blackwell’s Bookshop and Fledgling Press are delighted to invite you to the launch of For My Sins, the first historical novel for an adult audience by award-winning author Alex Nye.
About the book
In corridors of power, filled with conspiracy, intrigue, wrecked by factionalism and division ... meet a strong woman in a man's world, up against the odds.
Imprisoned for nearly 20 years in various castles around Britain, Mary Stuart contemplates her past and the struggles of being a woman in a man’s world. Awaiting execution in Fotheringhay Castle, Mary chronicles her life; the intrigue, conspiracy, religious division and conspiracies that brought her to this gruesome end.
Meticulously researched and factually accurate, Alex Nye brings the tragic Queen to life, in this evocative, historical novel that lay forgotten in a drawer for many years.
