A look at the lives of Edward and Alexandra, Britain's popular monarchs who came after Queen Victoria. The book starts out talking about their childhoods which were vastly different: happy (Alexandra) and unhappy (Edward). One feels sorry for Alexandra as she is forced into isolation because of her deafness and ill health during one of her pregnancies. It's an exciting look at a time long since gone. ( )

2631 Edward and Alexandra: Their Private and Public Lives, by Richard Hough (read 27 Jul 1994) This is a non-footnoted joint biography of Edward VII and his wife. It was of some interest. I was struck by how extravagantly wasteful they were--all those servants, their attention to horse-racing, all such dumb stuff. After Edward died, Alexandra did not amount to much, and her life from 1910 to 1925 is covered in this book in ten pages. ( )
