If you are looking for escapist reading that also brings to life a forgotten historical figure, this is it...and more. The Last Romantic: A Biography of Queen Marie of Roumania is a well-written and spell-binding story of a princess of England (and grand daughter of Queen Victoria as well as Tsar Alexander II), whose arranged marriage places her in the midst of Balkan politics and the short-lived monarchy of Roumania in the 19th & 20th C. It is a mesmerizing look at WWI & WWII from a different perspective and how Queen Marie made the best of her fate. You will see the British monarchy from the point of view of an insider and glimpse the demise of European royalty as important political figures. Marie was a first cousin to both Edward VII of England and the tragic Nicholas II of Russia, neither could save Roumania from Communism takeover. Maps, genealogies, & lots of photos. You will want to know more!
