Oh for a princess…
Little did I know that the day I started reading Sue Hampton’s Pomp and Circumstances (2012) that the ‘breaking news’ which would appear on my phone was the announcement by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge that they were expecting their third child.
Pomp and Circumstances is a sweet book about young teenagers finding acceptance for who they are on the day William and Catherine got married.
In true Sue-fashion, she shows how people from different walks of life and circumstances experience things and come together in adversity – personal or more general. Sue’s ability to ‘get under the skin’ exposes vulnerabilities we’re often reluctant to consider. We sometimes need to be shown the other side.
