The Other Windsor Girl

A Novel of Princess Margaret, Royal Rebel

By Georgie Blalock
Narrated by: Ann Marie Gideon
Length: 8 hours 55 minutes

The Other Windsor Girl

“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.”
