  • Love this book

    I am a historical fiction junkie. I read almost everything historical that I can get my hands on so when I heard about Marion Crawford I was intrigued. I have read much about the Queen but did not know anything about the governess. I knew that this was a book that I had to read. I loved how much she loved Elizabeth and Margaret. She was hired as a tutor but became so much more. She let them be children while also teaching them. She gave them normal experiences but also realized that they were not living normal lives. They had to be protected but also taught. She listened to them and gave them the best advice she could. I was amazed at how much of her life she had to give up to do her job. She did not see her mother regularly, she struggled to have a relationship with her fiancé, and when she married, she had to continue working away from her husband. When she choses to tell the princesses story she does not know how the royals will react. With their reaction she is shocked and heartbroken but knows that she did not do anything wrong. The Queen was able to edit what she wrote and still “allowed” it to be released. I enjoyed seeing Marion come into her own and stand up for herself. Her life was not easy, but she found a way to get the happy ever after that she deserved.

    Thanks for your feedback!
