Great History and a Great Read, 26 Aug. 2013
It is refreshing to read new scholarship about Queen Anne, last of the Stuart Monarchs. She is a little remembered but important. Good biographies of Queen Anne are few and far between. Those that have been published have been slanted due to relying on the biased and self-serving letters and diaries of the Queen's contemporaries. Anne Somerset has set the record straight in this work, and in a fashion that is immensely readable. I recommend this book to anyone who would like to know more about the remarkable monarch and this strategically important, but often forgotten period of history.
