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.

April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
