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.

The Courtiers: Splendor and Intrigue in the Georgian Court at Kensington Palace - Lucy Worsley I was very pleased with this book. Full of details about the lives of George II of England, and his wife, Queen Caroline (a woman who really deserves a biography of her own), along with various attendants, mistresses, and servants. The little drawings throughout the text really do add a lot to the story, along with some very meticulous research. Five stars overall, recommended.
