A different Queen Anne,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Queen Anne: The Politics of Passion: A Biography (Hardcover)
This book gives us a very different view of Queen Anne. A more personal, human and thoughtful account of this important Monarch. The fact that she did her best to be a good Queen while being pushed about and manipulated by many of those around her - including a succession of so-called friends. All the while dealing with over whelming tragedy and grief. In the end the books leaves you sad that she was abused in such a terrible manner and amazed that she did keep going in the face of such private pain and loss. A well written and absorbing account. Well balance between compassion and fact. I really enjoyed this - a compelling read, not like a history book at all.
