2082 The Pebbled Shore The Memoirs of Elizabeth Longford (read 23 May 1987) Having much admired the author's biographies of Queen Victoria and the Duke of Wellington, I read these 1986 memoirs. She and her husband, Frank Pakenham, became Catholics in the 1940's. They had eight children--six before she became a Catholic. Their oldest child is Antonia Fraser, whose book on Mary Queen of Scots I read in March of 1970 and their second child is Thomas Pakenham, whose excellent The Boer War I read in September of 1982. I found these Memoirs fun to read--she knows everybody in Britain and her book drips with name-dropping: pleasantly so. I could do worse than read other books by her. Her first, Jameson's Raid, used to be in our local library, but it is not there any more. ( )
