    Story

    The Queen of England has concocted a plan in which penniless aristocrat Lady Georgie is to entertain a Bavarian princess and conveniently place her in the playboy prince's path, in the hopes that he might finally marry.

    But queens never take money into account. Georgie has very little, which is why she moonlights as a maid-in-disguise.

    Story

    I believe I may have enjoyed this book if the narrator had not read it as if she was in a speed reading contest. I knew the narrator would have an English accent and I was prepared to deal with that but I simply could not deal with the speed with which she read. I am sorry if this review seems to disparage the author but I cannot recommend this book because it was narrated so fast that I could not comfortably listen to it.

    How did a black child, growing up in segregationist Mississippi during the early 1900s, become the commander of the Imperial Ethiopian Air Corps during the brutal Italo-Ethiopian War of 1935? In this gripping, never-before-told tale, biographer Thomas E. Simmons brings to life Robinson’s outstanding success in becoming a pilot, his expertise in building and assembling his own working aircraft, his influence on the establishment of a school of aviation at Tuskegee Institute, and his wartime service.

    Betty says: "Very interesting story about little known hero"
