Georgian Queens – Laura Purcell
Click here to read the review online. Overall, I do recommend this book if you are looking for an introduction to the Georgian monarchs. Curzon is a captivating writer and this book is an impressive addition to her existing Georgian books. Books that contain biographies of several people in one book are one of my favourite things to read because you get a titillating taste of the exciting life they lived, but only the best written of these books makes you want to pick up another book and read further into their lives.
This book easily accomplishes that. Read the complete review here. An impressively detailed, deftly crafted history that is as inherently fascinating as it is exceptionally informative, "Queens of Georgian Britain" is an extraordinary read from beginning to end. Featuring illustrations, an eleven page Bibliography, and a five page Index, "Queens of Georgian Britain" is a decidedly and unreservedly recommended addition to both community and academic library British History collections. I particularly liked how each Queen was contrasted with her predecessor, as well as the King Georges.
I found this topic fascinating, and this book was such a joy to read. I loved it.
Rating : 5 out of 5 stars A fabulous look through history at the four queen consorts of Georgian Britain all married to a King named George. This is a really interesting book and I really want a hard copy to keep.

I loved the depth that the author gives us of each of the women and their personalities. I actually found myself Googling the facts that I wanted to know more about, so this book is a wonderful point of reference as well as being a good read. I thoroughly enjoyed this historical nonfiction look at Georgian Britain.
In my experience, I have not found a lot of literature about this field, and the consorts of the Georges. Not dry at all, and I will probably return to this book again in the future. As featured on A book that history enthusiasts will love. Those who do not wholeheartedly embrace history should also enjoy this book, in part because of the writing style and the format of the book itself.
Written in a lovely, conversational style, which drew me in from the first pages. I really felt that Curzon was talking to me, which I liked. And I liked the book too — a lot.
