Review of The Lost Queen
Princess Charlotte should have had a life of glittering balls and possibly sitting on the throne of England. Her life was one tragedy after another. As she was first the product of an unhappy marriage, she was pulled between her parents, both of whom wanted to control her, and yet, they found that her will was just as stubborn as theirs was. She turned down one marriage, to make a match of her own choosing, and found some happiness there, yet the happiness was not to last.
As she prepared to give birth to her first child, she was on top of the world, planning a future that was hers. Yet tragedy was waiting in the wings…
This book was amazing! I knew of the story of Princess Charlotte, but I learned so much while reading this book! The ins and outs, the ups and downs, it is all played out on these pages – and leaves you with a picture of her life that will have you shaking your head. Her character was strong, and yet she found herself pulled between to parents, both of whom didn’t really love her as they should. She was a pawn, and useful to the games that they were playing, not the daughter that she could have been if they had given her the chance.
Grab this book, it is well worth your time to read! You will not be sorry at all!
