Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Serving Victoria: Life in the Royal Household - Kate Hubbard A great book about Queen Victoria and the people who served as her maids-of-honour, ladies-in-waiting not to mention her private secretaries, footmen and the like. Including the notorious John Brown. Plenty of entertaining stories, a few sad ones, and in the center of it all, the United Kingdom's longest reigning monarch -- up to now, it is -- Queen Victoria. Plenty of photographs, a fine bibliography, and a good read. Four stars overall and a happy recommend for royal watchers.
