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.

Becoming Queen Victoria: The Tragic Death of Princess Charlotte and the Unexpected Rise of Britain's Greatest Monarch - Kate Williams A very good biography contrasting two granddaughters of George III -- Princess Charlotte of Wales and Princess Victoria of Kent, -- and how similar their lives where. Very well written, lots of details, and some very charming reproductions of clothing and personal items as well as paintings and etchings. Recommended.
