My pick for this month is one of the most compelling, intriguing, and well-researched books I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch, written by the marvelous Sally Bedell Smith, digs deep in history to provide the reader or listener with a well-rounded backstory of Queen Elizabeth II; from her upbringing as an older sister to Princess Margaret to her young love affair with Prince Phillip and her eventual assent to the throne, Elizabeth the Queen truly unpacks the incredible and complex story of the now 94-year-old Queen. The novel acts as a journey through time- a history lesson- about the many figures surrounding the Queen in all stages of her life; from butlers and maids, to her close family friends and members of her royal lineage. As a bit of a “royal junkie,” Elizabeth the Queen allowed me to experience the life of Queen Elizabeth II in a way I never had before- I recommend this audiobook to any “royal junkie”, historian, or to anyone who is simply looking for a compelling novel to learn from this fall.
