Reading “Elizabeth The Queen” was my first exposure to the writing talents of Sally Bedell Smith, but it definitely will not be my last.
This was one of the better biographies I have read. It was emotional, informational, personal, human, real, insightful and moving. It keeps the mystery of the monarchy, while also letting the reader into the humanness of the monarchy. Every time I had to put the book down, usually around midnight, I could not wait for my next opportunity to read on.
Elizabeth The Queen is a journey through the life of our current monarch in the UK. She is highly loved by her people, and we all connect with her in many ways, but her reign has had its ups and downs in that regard. I thought I was familiar with our sovereign, but this book took me into places I had never seen.
