Mary, Lady Stewart (born Mary Florence Elinor Rainbow; 17 September 1916 – 9 May 2014) was a British novelist who developed the romantic mystery genre, featuring smart, adventurous heroines who could hold their own in dangerous situations. She also wrote children's books and poetry, but may be best known for her Merlin series, which straddles the boundary between the historical novel and fantasy.

Mary Stuart became a widow, and Dowager of France, in December 1560: it is not certain whether or not Bothwell was in her train at Joinville in April 1561. After Mary’s return to Scotland the old feud between Arran and Bothwell broke out afresh

Mary Stuart became a widow, and Dowager of France, in December 1560: it is not certain whether or not Bothwell was in her train at Joinville in April 1561. After Mary’s return to Scotland the old feud between Arran and Bothwell broke out afresh. Bothwell and d’Elbœuf paid a noisy visit to the handsome daughter of a burgess, said to be Arran’s mistress. There were brawls, and presently Bothwell attacked Cockburn of Ormiston, the man he had robbed, Arran’s ally, and carried off his son to Crichton Castle.

Guy does not diminish Mary's responsibility for the worst mistake of her life: her failure to prosecute, and her decision to marry, Bothwell, the foul-mouthed murderer who had abducted her. With stunning understatement, Mary was later to write of Bothwell (so violent that he beat an old servant to death in front of her): ''We cannot dissemble that he has used us otherwise than we would have wished or yet have deserved at his hand

And she is going to find a way to keep the gentle Elias shes beginning to love from ever disappearing again. Read full description. Country of Publication.

Both of me It was supposed to be just another flight, another escape into a foreign place where she could forget her past, forget her attachments. Until Clara found herself seated next to an alluring boy named Elias Phinn, a boy who seems to know secrets she has barely been able to admit to herself for years. When her carry-on bag is accidentally switched with Elias's identical pack, Clara uses the luggage tag to track down her things. At that address she discovers there is not one Elias Phinn, but two: the odd, paranoid, artistic, and often angry Elias she met on the plane, who lives in an imaginary world of his own making called Salem; and the kind, sweet, and soon irresistible Elias who greets her at the door, and who has no recollection of ever meeting Clara at all. As she learns of Elias's dissociative identity disorder, and finds herself quickly entangled in both of Elias's lives, Clara makes a decision that could change all of them forever. She is going to find out what the Salem Elias knows about her past, and how, even if it means playing along with his otherworldly quest. And she is going to find a way to keep the gentle Elias she's beginning to love from ever disappearing again.

I have purchased this book twice!! My 1st copy was misplaced by loaning out to family...I bow am going to read MY copy!????. I grew up watching the 15 minute segment each of Search for Tomorrow Guiding Light with my Mom in the 1960 when I was in the 1st grade...I loved the music and the Oxydol commercials..It always seemed that No was always in the kitchen...I also remember the background was always black... ... As I grew older I started watching Search for Tomorrow until the final episode.. Wonderful memories. Sandy

Anyone knowing anything about daytime serials knows "Search For Tomorrow" and the star of that show Mary Stuart. That serial is highly regarded today as the soap opera that became the first hit on American network daytime television way back in 1951 on CBS. Running for over 35 years "Search For Tomorrow" and its star still holds a place in the hearts of millions of fans growing up in America from the fifties to the eighties as Jo symbolized hope and posterity for the future. People adored Mary's beautiful portrayal of the heroine Jo as she was the glue that held that serial together for so many years.

In 1980 Mary Stuart wrote her long-awaited memoir, one of the first daytime legends to do so. In "Both of Me" Mary writes about her beginnings in Hollywood that lead her to star in "Search For Tomorrow". She talks about her personal life, but probably of more interest to soap fans she writes about the history of the show she starred on, everything from her favorite co-stars to her most hated storylines, one invloving the death of her onscreen child.

A wonderful read, I highly recommend anyone interested in the history of soaps to obtain a copy of this well-written and interesting work.

Another soap legend, Susan Lucci, has released her autobiography on March 29, 2011 so look for that as well.

Wonderful Mary Stuart, best known from 35 years as JOANNE on the now-defunct SEARCH FOR TOMORROW, has authored a magnificent book which is not only a ocmpelling autobiography, but a fascinating history of broadcast television. Should be required reading for soap opera fans and TV historians, alike. Mary has done what no other living actor has managed to do: play one character for 35 years and keep her vital, interesting and popular. Add this wonderful volume to your collection!

This book is one of the BEST I've ever read! The writing is simple beautiful and portrays the real life of daytime actress, Mary Stuart. Her Love for her family, friends, co-workers, etc. It is a great indepth look at the world of soap operas, and trying to live a normal life despite all the pressures of being an actress struggling, then finally making her dream come true. The humor in this book is absolutely wonderful! You will laugh, cry, and simply be overwhelmed with the content and beautiful poems and music this wonderful lady of daytime television was so talented in writing. She was truly one of kind, and I highly recommend reading this book, it's one you can read over and over and still come away with something you've learned about life, love, family and responsibilities. This is an absolutely AWESOME piece of work!

I remember watching "Search" in the early 80's, set in the fictional town of Henderson located somewhere in the mid-west. Mary Stuart (who played Joanne Baron Tate Vincente Touerner, but lovingly referred to as "Jo") was the voice of reason, graciousness, but was one who gave good advice when it was sorely needed to anyone that came to her in their time of need. Each episode began with the one minute set-up of the episode (example: Warren schemes to seek revenge with Jenny Deacon, as he feels she "knows too much")...then cut to the opening sequence: "This isssssssss Search for Tomorrow. This part brought to you by Oxydol. Oxydol bleaches as it washes for whites so white, they'll actually compare to new." Well, those were my memories of "Search" and Jo until I saw "Both of Me" at a second hand book store, with mary Stuart's portrait gracing the cover. By no means is this book soap opera-ish. It recounts the story of Mary's early beginnings in Tulsa, to her making it big in NYC. Mary's humorous recounting of her upbringing, family (and extended family) bring many dimensions to this fascinating woman. She speaks with much sincerity with her failure as a stewardess(!) and her criticism of "Search" during a dark period of time when the show was losing direction and adding on younger characters to give it a more "with-it" or "youthful" appeal. She delves into her friendships (and disagreements) with family. co-stars, producers and the like, but never in a condescending manner. Mary certainly is the voice of reason and a figure of dignity both on "Search" and in her professional and personal life!
