by | Read by William Shawcross, Sophie Roberts

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Abridged • © 2009

As the official biographer of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, William Shawcross is an expert on the details of the remarkable life of Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes Lyon, the young Scots woman who came to be affectionately known worldwide as the “Queen Mum.” Shawcross’s experience as a writer and broadcaster gives him the authority and stamina to perform this monumental biography of a life that encompassed a century. Sophie Roberts delivers the words from the Queen Mother’s correspondence. Like an extensive behind-the-scenes tour of a castle, the biography is rich in detail that personalizes history. As British Royals continue to be covered in the international media, this well-organized biography proves that their history is just as intriguing.
