This non-fiction novel, Elizabeth & Margaret is such a captivating book that brings the reader into the fascinating relationship of Queen Elizabeth and her sister Margaret. I have a tough time sometimes with non-fiction novels but this was so interesting and well written that it felt like a cross between watching a documentary, (which I loooove!) and watching The Crown (another love of mine).
I remember Andrew Morton’s book about Diana and hearing how well he captured her story and I must say, he did a thorough job with researching the happenings and experiences between the two sisters. Coupled with photographs and behind-the-scenes knowledge, this biography is an insightfully gorgeous book about these two sisters and definitely one to be a part of your collection.
Thank you Grand Central Publishing for the gifted book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

This biography from a New York Times bestselling author follows Queen Elizabeth II and her sister Margaret as they navigate life in the royal spotlight. They were the closest of sisters and the best of friends. But when, in a quixotic twist of fate, their uncle Edward Vlll abdicated the throne, the dynamic between Elizabeth and Margaret was dramatically altered. Forever more Margaret would have to curtsey to the sister she called 'Lillibet.' And bow to her wishes. Margaret's struggle to find a place and position inside the royal system—and her fraught relationship with its expectations—was often a source of tension.. This book explores their relationship over the years.
