Spotlight on Europe

As High As The Heavens by Kathleen Morgan

From CBD:
It is 1568 and Mary, Queen of Scots, is imprisoned in Lochleven Castle. But her supporters, including noblewoman Heather Gordon, are planning a rescue. Heather travels to a cottage in the frigid Highlands to teach a simple man, who just happens to resemble someone with access to Lochleven, how to act the part of a nobleman in order to gain entry to the castle. But in the close quarters of the cottage there is more stirring than political rebellion.

This one is a relatively recent release and appears to be rather popular. I've heard lots of good things about Kathleen's writing but have yet to read one of her books. I think this will be the first one. Partly because the publisher is Revell and partly because it sounds very interesting. This is not a plot that's very common right now. This time period in general is also doing well right now with last year's "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" starring Cate Blanchett and "The Other Boleyn Girl" from last month starring Natalie Portman and Scarlet Johansen.
