Coronation Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Coronation

A working class family decide to give up their annual holiday, and instead travel to London to see the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The book is the story of the events of the day, and the reactions of the various members of the family to those events. It is beautifully written, and is my favourite Paul Gallico story.
