Mrs. Queen Takes the Train by William Kuhn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
At turns laugh out loud funny and incredibly moving, William Kuhn's Mrs. Queen Takes the Train follows the Queen, who has not quite been herself and finding herself outside the palace gates accidentally unattended, decides to take advantage of the situation to go buy some cheese. As more members of the palace staff discover her missing, they decide to try to find her before the prss or public discover that she has gone missing.
This is a ridiculously charming and funny book that took me by surprise on a number of occasions at how touching it is, as well. If you are a fan of Alan Bennett's The Uncommon Reader, you will certainly enjoy Mrs. Queen Takes the Train.
