Very much enjoyed this biography of a much-loved British queen. Hugo Vickers has written a very flattering account of the late queen mother's fascinating life. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0091800102, Hardcover)

An authoritative and affectionate biography of the Late Queen Mother.

Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother’s life spanned the entire 20th century and through that century she witnessed decades of dramatic change, not least within her own family. Following her carefree and untroubled childhood she stepped into the public domain as the wife of a king, where she triumphed with her stoic support of the monarchy and her country and, after her husband’s death, with her oldest daughter Queen Elizabeth II, she remained a key player in the unfolding drama of Britain’s Royal Family.

The book is published to coincide with the third anniversary of the Queen Mother’s death.
