This book is a balanced account of Prince Albert's life - both in his public role as prince consort and as a husband and father. Albert often had to be content to work "behind the scenes" in order to accomplish his goals, and the author provides the details of both his success and his failures.
It is a very enjoyable book. If you liked the author's earlier biography of Queen Victoria, you will like this book too.
