The Other Windsor Girl
A Novel of Princess Margaret, Royal Rebel
Narrated by Ann Marie Gideon / 8 hours 55 minutes
“I was so excited to listen to this historical fiction novel. The story takes place just after WWII. The Hon. Vera Strathmore is introduced to Princess Margaret and they hit it off instantly. Princess Margaret is fascinated with Vera because she writes graphic romance novels. Vera becomes the Princess' Lady-In-Waiting. She also becomes the narrator of the story. Princess Margaret is by far the most colorful and animated member of the royal family. This book is entertaining as well as captivating. The Narrator has a cool, crisp accent which adds a sparkle to this delightful story.”Melinda, Buttonwood Books and Toys

Diana, Catherine, Meghan…glamorous Princess Margaret outdid them all. Springing into post-World War II society, and quite naughty and haughty, she lived in a whirlwind of fame and notoriety. Georgie Blalock captures the fascinating, fast-living princess and her “set” as seen through the eyes of one of her ladies-in-waiting.
In dreary, post-war Britain, Princess Margaret captivates everyone with her cutting edge fashion sense and biting quips. The royal socialite, cigarette holder in one hand, cocktail in the other, sparkles in the company of her glittering entourage of wealthy young aristocrats known as the Margaret Set, but her outrageous lifestyle conflicts with her place as Queen Elizabeth’s younger sister. Can she be a dutiful princess while still dazzling the world on her own terms?
Post-war Britain isn’t glamorous for The Honorable Vera Strathmore. While writing scandalous novels, she dreams of living and working in New York, and regaining the happiness she enjoyed before her fiancé was killed in the war. A chance meeting with the Princess changes her life forever. Vera amuses the princess, and what—or who—Margaret wants, Margaret gets. Soon, Vera gains Margaret’s confidence and the privileged position of second lady-in-waiting to the Princess. Thrust into the center of Margaret’s social and royal life, Vera watches the princess’s love affair with dashing Captain Peter Townsend unfurl.
But while Margaret, as a member of the Royal Family, is not free to act on her desires, Vera soon wants the freedom to pursue her own dreams. As time and Princess Margaret’s scandalous behavior progress, both women will be forced to choose between status, duty, and love…
