The Queen: - Her LIfe by Andrew Morton, 1 Each, $38.00
Book by Andrew Morton, a #1 New York Times bestselling biographer, provides the definitive, most comprehensive account of Queen Elizabeth II's legendary reign. Painfully shy, Elizabeth Windsors personality was well suited to her youthful ambition of living quietly in the country, raising a family, & caring for her dogs & horses. But when her uncle, King Edward VIII, abdicated, she became heir to the throneembarking on a journey that would test her as a woman & queen. Ascending to the throne at only 25, this self-effacing monarch navigated endless setbacks, family conflict, & occasional triumphs throughout her 70 years as the Queen of England. As her mettle was tested, she endeavored to keep the monarchy relevant culturally, socially, & politically, often in the face of resistance from inside the institution itself. And yet the greatest challenges she faced were often inside her own family, forever under intense scrutiny; from rumors about her husbands infidelity, her sisters marital breakdown, Princess Dianas tragic death, to the recent departure of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle. This is the story of a woman of unflagging self-discipline who will long be remembered as mother & grandmother to Great Britain, & one of the greatest sovereigns of the modern era.
