Join hosts Nancy Reid & Lisa Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for Big Blend Radio's Way Back When History show, with author Judith Lissauer Cromwell, who discusses her latest book “Good Queen Anne: Appraising the Life and Reign of the Last Stuart Monarch.”

As the author of two previous historical biographies about complex and famous women, Dorothea Lieven and Florence Nightingale, Judith Cromwell is qualified to meet the challenge and tell the true story of Queen Anne that posterity has lost. Her examination of archives, primary sources, and material on Anne’s contemporaries reveals Anne as a resolute and multi-faceted woman who rose above adversity to become an effective and beloved queen.

Featured music is “Rise” by Nicki Kris. Thanks to JKS Communications for sponsoring this episode.
