The Strangest Family by Janice Hadlow

"One of his wife's chief virtues, in George's eyes, was that she never made trouble"

So I finished this one while getting my hair coloured. It is a lengthy process, much like this tale of  the Hanoverians. The cover promised some scandal and intrigue that the content did not really, for me, deliver.
Over more than 600 pages, I learnt a little about the love lives of these past royals, their abilities to birth male or female heirs and the resulting dynastic dilemmas.
I may have fallen asleep at some point. It might have been the combination of wine, hot foils and the hairdryer, who knows.

2 out of 5 wake me up when my reign is over.
