The life of Princess May of Teck is one of the great Cinderella stories in history.

The biography of Queen Mary who was a sad woman, bound by duty and apparently incapable of showing normal human affection to her children, or having a single spontaneous moment in her life. ( )

Well written biography of the wife of King George V, Mother of King George VI, and Grandmother of Elizabeth II. I learned a great deal about the lives of George V and Queen Mary, their times, and their relationships with their children. My one criticism of the writing is about the footnoting. Fully 40% of the footnotes were unnecessary. It would have been easier and enhanced the sentences to have added the material in the sentence, and would have made the book substantially less choppy when reading it. ( )
