About the Book

Mrs. Queen Takes the Train

by William Kuhn

An absolute delight of a debut novel by William Kuhn, MRS. QUEEN TAKES THE TRAIN wittily imagines the kerfuffle that transpires when a bored Queen Elizabeth strolls out of the palace in search of a little fun, leaving behind a desperate team of courtiers who must find the missing Windsor before a national scandal erupts. Reminiscent of Alan Bennett’s THE UNCOMMON READER, this lively, wonderfully inventive romp takes readers into the mind of the grand matriarch of Britain’s Royal Family, bringing us an endearing runaway Queen Elizabeth on the town --- and leading us behind the Buckingham Palace walls and into the upstairs/downstairs spaces of England’s monarchy.
