The Lost Queen | [Norah Lofts]

The Lost Queen

Thus the future of Caroline Matilda, youngest sister of George III, was settled – marriage to the nearly insane Prince of Denmark. Prompted by a sense of foreboding, she begged that one of her sisters should be sent in her place. But Caroline was the healthiest, the strongest of the English princesses, and as well as being exiled, princesses were meant to be brood mares…Exiled in a strange country, isolated by her inability to speak the language, Caroline forms a close bond with the King’s doctor, Johann Struensee.

    Story
    "What a Lovely Memory!"

    This is the first historical fiction that I can remember reading in my youth. Norah Lofts was a wonderful beginning for a young girl and this book was a good reminder to me of why I came to love history.

    This is not a bodice ripper, but rather, a retelling of an actual historical life with never a vampire in sight. And I still look forward to many more of Lofts' novels.

    Story
    "Engaging Main Character, Annoying narration"

    I almost didn't get past the first five minutes of this book. The voices the narrator used to portray the characters were extremely annoying. However, once I got into the story I was able to ignore the voices enjoyed the listen. I didn't know anything about this Queen and her story was interesting and sad.
