    A must-read for anyone who wants to know more about Queen Anne and her favourite, Sarah Churchill. Be warned, however, that these are Sarah's opinions POST-ROW with Anne, so clearly there is an element of vindictiveness to the whole thing. Indeed, Sarah comes across just as meddlesome as Mary II thought she was, and very unkind in her judgements of various people, including Anne and Mary, not to mention her rival, Abigail Masham. After having done a great deal of research on Sarah, I'm afraid my A must-read for anyone who wants to know more about Queen Anne and her favourite, Sarah Churchill.

After having done a great deal of research on Sarah, I'm afraid my opinion of her is now at an all-time low!

    I read this online at archive.org https://archive.org/details/conductof... But then by some miracle I found a very good 1742 copy online at abe books for only £35! It had a new binding but the text was really clear so I bought that! I really enjoyed reading this. It was great to get Sarah's perspective on what happened. Especially illustrated with so many primary sources, letters she had received and letters she had sent, as well as letters to her husband.

But then by some miracle I found a very good 1742 copy online at abe books for only £35! It had a new binding but the text was really clear so I bought that! I really enjoyed reading this. It was great to get Sarah's perspective on what happened. Especially illustrated with so many primary sources, letters she had received and letters she had sent, as well as letters to her husband. It showed how politics and religion affected her relationship with Ann. But even though it had been written decades after her "disgrace" I felt she was still sincere in her affections to Ann, and Ann had clearly been in hers to Sarah earlier. I think Ann has the reputation of being rather a weak monarch but the way she defied the Queen and kept her relationship with Sarah was not the actions of a weak woman but a very determined one. It was lovely to read this piece of history. It's only been in the past year or so I've developed an interest in 17th and 18th century British history but it is such a fascinating time for women's history. I definitely want to explore it more.
