It’s day six of my blog tour and I’m enjoying my visits to a range of book-loving blogs. Read to Ramble has given The Princess of Felling a five star review. Blogger Ellie writes:
“I absolutely adored reading this book from start to finish and it absolutely deserves 5 stars! This was such a special memoir, it wasn’t like those that you can never understand or you get bored reading, I felt like I had known Elaine for years and I could relate to many things she went through, struggles she faced, experiences she lived, feelings she had and the grief of losing loved ones. My favourite part of this book was reading about her and her father’s relationship, it reminded me of my own relationship with my father and it brought tears to my eyes. It would seem both Elaine and I have fond memories of our dads driving us to school.
This was such a beautiful, heartfelt, special, unique book and I can only recommend it to everyone. This is a book that I will remember for a very long time to come. I have never visited Felling or even been near the North East of England, but I feel like I know this place she grew up in. This book made me laugh, smile, made my eyes water, and brought back so many lovely memories of my own childhood and teenage years and I’m so, so glad that I got to read this book. It really is the beautiful story of a Princess, paying tribute to her King and Queen and the town in which her Castle is still standing today.”
