I Recommend This Book

Yes

This is the most detailed biography of the life of Princess Margaret that I have had the pleasure of reading.  The detail is astonishing  and I felt that you got to know more about the struggles she had within her life as "the spare" to start with once her sister Princess Elizabeth took the throne and then more so to try and carve a life for herself  outside of that.  She certainly lived her life as a royal and enjoyed all the trappings that go with that.  She had her inner circle that looked after her but she struggled to find contentment for long.  This biography has been wonderfully written. I found it hard to put down.  I wished there had been more written about her final days especially as the book was published before her death.  Nevertheless this did not take anything away from the book itself.  I really enjoyed reading it .
