Rosalyn Landor's elegant performance provides the perfect complement to Smith's detailed narrative on the unexpected lives of this beloved aristocratic couple who rescued the British monarchy from the brink of disaster. The well-researched account begins with their somewhat rocky courtship. Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon turned down Prince Albert, Duke of York, twice before accepting his third proposal. Their story continues through Albert's unforeseen accession to the throne as George VI to his untimely death in 1952. Landor's unhurried narration skillfully delineates the many members of the royal family, their attendants, and the government representatives with whom they interacted. Royal watchers intrigued by the vicissitudes of the current generation of Windsors will find themselves engrossed in this love story. S.G. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
