Queens of England
by Norah Lofts
Publisher: Doubleday & Company, Inc.
FIRST EDITION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Norah Lofts' superb new book is an unusual evocation of English history, a chronicle told through the lives of the women who have over the centuries ruled as sovereigns in their own right, or as royal consorts. From Boadicea, who defied the Romans, to Elizabeth II, now celebrating 25 years on the throne, the Queens of England are given new dimension with all of Norah Lofts' compassion, wit and biographical skill.
What were the problems these women faced, in the palace and on the battlefield, in the bedroom as well as the kingdom? How did they cope -- what were the living conditions and how did these affect their policies and reactions to events? Queens of England is a magnificent pageant, a tale of successes, mistakes, dangers and wars, happiness, pomp and power. It is a splendidly moving drama, charting national and royal fortunes and misfortunes with appealing new clarity.
