Review by briandrewz
A good, little book about a much-loved residence of the British royal family. The story begins with the purchase of Sandringham and ends with the death of King George VI in 1952. Apart from a couple of factual errors, this book is an engaging look at a family's country house, and the life that family lived when in residence.
