One of the unexpected treats of William Shawcross' well-received 2009 official biography of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother (1900-2002) was his excerpting of the long-lived royal's lively correspondence. Those quotations, however, turn out to be only a sampling of her prolific, lifelong output. Counting One's Blessings shares a generous selection of the queen mother's letters, which reaffirm The Sunday Times' previous judgment of them as "wonderful...brimful of liveliness and irreverence, steeliness and sweetness." The collection includes private letters from her childhood to her husband George VI's reign and beyond. A joy of the season for royal watchers.
