Queen Camilla is Sue Townsend's hilarious continuation of the British Royal Family's exile to an urban "exclusion zone." Prince Philip in a sub-standard nursing home? The queen seeing "the pliers woman" for dental care? Prince William working for a scaffolding company and driving a pickup truck?? For possibly the only time in his royal life, Prince Michael of Kent, came out ahead by fleeing to Dubai without his wife! A hilarious read no matter how you feel about royalty!
The Victorian House reads like a novel-- and as cozy as snuggling under a warm blanket and watching a wonderful British drama like "Upstairs, Downstairs." If you love "The 1900s House" on tv, you will enjoy this one for sure!
P and I have enjoyed listening to the first of the celebrated "Stephanie Plum" series about Trenton's pluckiest bounty hunter! I heard this report on NPR and knew I had to start at the beginning. I had no idea my Mom was an avid fan of the whole series!
