Description

Queen Victoria's personal journals inform this captivating first-person novel about of one of history's most prominent female leaders. Queen Victoria most certainly left a legacy--under her rule as the longest reigning female monarch in history, the British Empire was greatly expanded and significant industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military changes occurred within the United Kingdom. To be a young woman in a time when few other females held positions of power was to lead in a remarkable age--and because Queen Victoria kept personal journals, this historical novel from award-winning author Carolyn Meyer shares authentic emotional insight along with accurate information, weaving a true story of intrigue and romance.

Review quote

Meyer ably reconstructs Queen Victoria's childhood in this mild historical novel, in which a young
princess struggles to reconcile her desires with her place in history. Stifled by a controlling mother and
placed in the center of a power struggle between that mother and King William, Victoria longs for the day
when she can be her own woman. Her inevitable marriage is another threat to her independence, until she
meets Prince Albert and falls in love. Once she is queen, her passionate but self-righteous childishness
gives way to a more balanced woman willing to admit mistakes, in part thanks to Albert's equally
passionate opinions. . Meyer's intimate and authentic portrait will engage readers looking for a personal connection or
proof that history's largest figures were once just like them.--Booklist
