Bernard, a hidden story

Can you read this face? The mystery around Bernhard, late prince of de Netherlands, husband of our late queen Juliana, is unraveled by one of my favourite writers, Annejet van der Zijl. With great integrity, feel for history and a wonderful writingstyle, it took her five years to complete this interesting book. To be honest the prince didn't interest me very much but his history did. The story of Bernhard is both a personal story as a historical one. It revives an episode in (German) history and changes your look on certain choises that the prince made. Although his behaviour was not totaly his fault, his character doesn't win you over. Regards to our queen Beatrix for becoming the woman she is despite of her rather immoral father.
