Censoring Queen Victoria by Yvonne M. Ward
Censoring Queen Victoria by Yvonne M. Ward
5.0 out of 5 stars At Last!, 14 April 2014
At last someone has taken the trouble to delve beneath the surface and uncover why so much nonsense is presented about Queen Victoria nowadays! This is a fascinating book which is both informative and easy to read and approaches the story of the Queen from an entirely new perspective. It sheds a great deal of light on the characters who first edited Victoria's letters and explains why so many important details are omitted. In many ways it is disturbing to realise that these troubled men have been responsible for creating an incomplete and often inauthentic portrayal of Victoria, and it is wonderful that, all these years later, this author has presented the truth! Highly recommended!

Lark Rise to Candleford - Complete Series 1-4 Box &hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Olivia Hallinan
This is truly the most beautiful series I have ever seen. As each series progressed, the characters developed and became more and more loveable, as their foibles were as endearing as their kindnesses. Each separate story was wonderful because there was inevitably a problem but one which the viewer knew would be solved in a perfect way, and the settings are beyond beautiful! I do not think such 'feel good' set of stories has ever been made, and yet there was nothing slushy or over-romantic about them. It is just such a treasure to watch - one which uplifts the heart and makes you feel good about the world!
