Product description

Review

...readers will appreciate the Queen Mother's story as the woman behind the crown is given a chance to shine on her own with all her faults and glory.--Booklist

Praise for American Duchess: "Harper's latest immerses readers in British high society, with intrigue and gossip around every corner...this tender, well researched novel lets readers see the economic, social, and political highlights of the nineteenth-century Gilded Age brought to life through Consuelo Vanderbilt's eyes."--Booklist

Harper's enchanting latest (after American Duchess) explores the private life of Queen Elizabeth, formerly Elizabeth Bowes Lyon...Harper's evocative prose and able plotting make each twist and turn believable. This displays Harper's mastery at fictional profiles of prominent 20th-century women.--Publishers Weekly

Praise for American Duchess: "This absorbing and evocative tale is an excellent reminder of what women have long sacrificed over the centuries for family honor and duty, and how they navigated their circumstances and influence to change the world for the better."--Heather Webb, international bestselling author of Last Christmas in Paris

Praise for The It Girls: "The It Girls is a glorious romp through the lives and loves of the scintillating Sutherland sisters.... Readers who enjoy historical fiction are in for a treat!"

--Hazel Gaynor, New York Times bestselling author of The Cottingley Secret and The Girl Who Came Home



The Windsors continue to fascinate as we watch a new generation grow up. Harper's novel draws attention to the heroism and strength of the royal family during a trying time in history. A strong selection for those interested in a more personal imagining of royal life at that time.--Library Journal

"Well researched and beautifully written, I highly recommend The Queen's Secret."--Romance Reviews Today

"If you thought the Queen Mum was a benign, plump, cheery old lady, think again. In Karen Harper's novel she is tough, determined, and fabulously gossipy. Reading this novel is like sitting next to an indiscreet royal insider at a private dinner."--Gill Paul, bestselling author of The Lost Daughter
