Praise for GOod Queen Anne


A polished biography that illuminates the life and reign of Anne Stuart (1665–1714), queen of England. Independent historian Cromwell (Florence Nightingale, Feminist, 2013, etc.) makes a convincing case for Queen Anne’s shrewdness at navigating the political extremes of her time … Details regarding royal food, clothing, and gardens are vivid and sumptuous. A good number of quotes are taken from primary sources and supply the flavor of period speech … A fine blending of the personal and the political. – Kirkus Reviews

Good Queen Anne follows the life and tribulations of one of England’s most powerful women. Anne Stuart, often overlooked by history, proved that women in the 18th century were not the weak stereotypes they are sometimes portrayed to be. Anne acted as a strong queen and became beloved by her subjects. Anyone interested in the Oscar winning movie “The Favorite” and learning the true life of Anne Stuart should brace themselves for Cromwell’s riveting insight into her life. – Amazing Women in History
