    1. A vast improvement over the first volume of the Georgian saga, this book showed me the Sophie, Sophie Charlotte and most importantly the Caroline I d been looking for I ve already read and enjoyed Caroline the Queen so it was especially nice to get back story, particularly about the enmity between Caroline s husband the future George II and father in law King George I given further context by the events of Princess of Celle Sigh This is why I like to read series in order But these books get har [...]


    2. Very interesting Tells the story of Caroline s youth and early marriage up until she becomes queen It also recounts the enmity between George I and George ii.


    3. Have learnt so much about the Georgians Caroline is my hero Had to start next book immediately This Georgian saga is addictive


    4. The long drawn out story of how the first king George of England became the king of England and Hanover Lots of details about the power play between father and son, but not too interesting.


    5. Read so many Jean Plaidy books as a kid kind of fun to find a stash of them at the library and do some comfort reading.
