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.

Mrs Queen Takes the Train - William Kuhn A very amusing, but also serious in spots, read. The Queen goes AWOL leaving plenty of mayhem in her wake, as several members of the Royal Household give chase. But there are serious notes such as racism, the perceived notions of monarchs, why royals can be useful to have about, poverty, the homeless, and isolation. There's also a few jabs at other novels about the Queen, and out of all of them, this one is the best. The author showed real knowledge about why people go into royal service and why discretion is so valued. All in all, this one gets four stars overall, and a much recommend.
