In these family reminiscences Nora K. Strange etches in the historic back- ground with a light but sure touch. She furnishes a first-hand description of the Battle of Culloden, of Jacobite loyalty and intrigue, of monotonous existence spent in the "Shadow Court" in the Muti Palace in Rome. And if the last of the Stuarts, through intimate daily contact, are shorn of much of their romantic trappings and glamour, the House of Hanover emerges in a more gracious and kingly light. From the historic landscape the domestic scene merges into a Georgian facade and terminates in the opening years of Victoria's reign.
