We're at the era of history where King Edward VIII abdicated so he could marry Mrs. Wallis Simpson, a twice-divorced American; and his brother, George, becomes King.
The abdication topic is causing some very interesting conversations with Bobs.... and Grandad has a decided opinion about that event in history ;-)
I couldn't locate (easily or quickly!!!) a book detailing the abdication, writtten in a more story styled format - that wasn't seriously *adult* in tone - so we've stuck with some non-fiction references, and online articles.
The BBC have some interesting extra's to listen to and read through.
The natural progression after the abdication, for us, was to study the coronation of King George VI.
King Georg VI's actual Coronation speech can be heard via youtube.
We're watching through a BBC production on you tube about George VI: The Reluctant King
(Sorry, I cannot vouch for any follow on videos or side panel content that may show up from you tube :/ )
I slotted this side study in between SOTW4 chapters 26 & 27 ... we like to have to more Brit hist added to our schedule than the fleeting amount our American history schedulers, Susan Bauer, and Sonlight, prescribed for us ;-)
Here is King George VI's speech leading up to WWII.
WWII is our next topic of study, after our scheduled week off.
Next week, for me, is a solid week of spring cleaning and resorting.
