Telling the story of the Queen in an hour is a challenge but this book is well written and does what it says on the tin, which is refreshing. If you are sick of the nauseating gush of the Jubilee celebrations and want to (briefly) know more of the real story of this remarkable woman, this is the kindle book for you. The sisterly tensions, the at times difficult marriage, the errant children and their (deeply) flawed spouses, is real life in full view of the world and far more compelling than any "reality" TV show. I shed a tear at various points and came away even more impressed with HMQ, and the sheer force of will and self discipline it has taken, against all the odds, to keep the House of Windsor (or Saxe Coburg-Gotha ) and the monarchy alive.

Love the history in an hour books, informative and quick to read. If you like to read history this is a simple and effective way to get started and highlights which parts interest you most

This is a really good value read on the life of the Queen. It focuses a lot on her early life and the changes within the royal family over the years. Unfortunately there are quite a few grammatical/editing mistakes in the ebook which is disappointing.

A complete outline of the monarch reigning my country over the whole of my life to date. A clear record of herself, her parents an grandparents an heirs with sufficient detail to known them. An excellent and easy read.

Bought for school project. Just right. All the pertinent facts that we needed without getting bogged down. A few pictures would have been nice. Have gone on to purchase more in the series.

A good series of books. Will keep returning to read more. Am dedicated to the Royal Family as the country's example setters and envoys. The book cheered me up.

This was enjoyable light reading with a little history of the Royal family without going to deeply into all the tragedies of recent years
