right to participate in as the rightful Queen of England She apparently had been having some health problems, but they worsened when she was excluded from the coronation and she died within weeks Poison She seemed to be a very kindhearted, generous woman although very quirky to say the least Caroline s troubles start early in life Her gene pool is a little cloudy so she is treated with kid gloves most of her early life People don t want to upset or disturb her when correcting her socially unacceptable behavior They don t want to send her over the edge Keep in mind the socially unacceptable behavior extends to her uproarious laughter, voicing her opinions or thoughts, and addressing everyone, I mean everyone regardless of rank as dear Oh the horror, my sweethearts Caroline s Caroline s troubles start early in life Her gene pool is a little cloudy so she is treated with kid gloves most of her early life People don t want to upset or disturb her when correcting her socially unacceptable behavior They don t want to send her over the edge Keep in mind the socially unacceptable behavior extends to her uproarious laughter, voicing her opinions or thoughts, and addressing everyone, I mean everyone regardless of rank as dear Oh the horror, my sweethearts Caroline s mother is no help, and the only person who tries to help her is her father s mistress Unfortunately she is not really in the best position to help Caroline She can only do so much considering the prevailing social conventions of the day For 26 years, Caroline runs wild and does as she pleases, therefore when she goes to England to be married Caroline is ill prepared to deal with or handle English manners or aristocracy.In England, Caroline also must deal with the sins of her mother s past actions Unfortunately everywhere she turns Caroline is disliked and disrespected, except when it comes to the common folk, who love her immensely She treats them with respect in a kind and caring manner For all her faults, Caroline performed a lot of good works during her English reign.Plaidy s description of Caroline and the Prince s wedding night is hilarious, as is some of the conversations between Caroline and her friends Caroline may have been a little out there, but she was truly a good soul who endured quite a bit during her adult life.With respect to the Prince of Wales, all I can say is what an ass My God, I would have slapped him or something Between his crying jags and waving his scented hankie around, he did not display many great traits in my opinion I did empathize with him in regards to his lost love with Maria However, if the Prince would have tempered his bad habits, maybe he could have found a way to be with Maria, instead of marrying someone who he had no intention of liking.All in all this book was a good read Plaidy s writing makes it easy to connect with the characters and what they are experiencing, good or bad Plaidy has quite a knack for bringing out strong feelings in the reader, with respect to her storyline At least she does for me I ve said it before and I ll say it again I m a sucker for Jean Plaidy books.Oh my.Caroline, whatever will we do with you When we first meet Caroline, she is a teenager and she pulls off the most outrageous stuntslike pretending she s giving birth in retaliation for not being allowed to attend the ball The marriage between Caroline and George was set to fail right from the beginning, from the deliberate sabotage of the power hungry Lady Jersey, to the chilly reception of most of the Eng I ve said it before and I

disaster those two are It is a pity, neither were able to marry those they really wanted TheGeorge is repulsed by Caroline, theoutrageous and eccentric Caroline becomes As years go by, it s interesting how Caroline handles the hurt and lack of love she receives but also amazing to read how outlandish and unique she is I almost couldn t believe it, until I looked up other sources Jean Plaidy has certainly given Caroline a voice She is not just the outrageous and eccentric Princess Queen, she is the distraught, hurt and despised foreigner at court It was necessary for the Prince of Wales to marry and the choice fell on Caroline of Brunswick Caroline wanted to marry a Major in her father s army and her unpredictable behaviour had already resulted in scandals about her private
