    1. Like a lot of readers of my generation, I first encountered the fascinating figure of Caroline of Ansbach in Neal Stephenson's giant Baroque Cycle, which touched upon her early life as a refugee princess in Germany who finally washed up in the court of the redoubtable Sophie Charlotte, Electress of Hanover and there was a pupil of Gottfried Liebniz. She finished those novels as the wife of Sophie's grandson George Augustus, the future Prince of Wales and thus the future George II of England. All [...]


    2. I have a soft spot for historical fictions involving royalty and Jean Plaidy books. So I eagerly started reading this book and naturally I wasn't disappointed. It was fun and fascinating to read a Queen who understood how to use her power and intelligence for the great good. But alas, why wasn't she the King? Poor Caroline, had to constantly placate her husband, King George, who had very little thought in his mind and had no idea his thoughts were directed and controlled by Caroline and Walpole. [...]


    3. A rather easy and quick read as most of Plaidy / Holt's books are. I found the German "accent" written into the early dialogue distracting but once the story got started it was hard to put down. Plaidy writes in a rather matter-of-fact way and thankfully skips the most gratuitous of scenes choosing to focus more on the intrigue and interplay of various personal agendas.


    4. I have to say I loved this story! Pompous George II has me in stitches laughing, and it is great to read about a strong female historical figure who used her intelligence to hide from the men that it was really her who ruled England. Brilliant!
