5.0 out of 5 stars A delight, 7 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Queen Victoria: A Personal History (Paperback)
This is a delightful book on very level. It tells the story of the life of Queen Victoria in an easy, accessible style, illustrated with many exerpts from her letters and diaries, and those of some of her contemporaries. Thus, the story of this gifted, sometimes happy, often deeply sad woman is brought to life in the words of those who knew her, and gives a very full and absorbing picture of a troubled but dutiful monarch. While it is obviously of historical interest, this book sometimes comes across like a well-written novel, and I challenge anyone not to find it a thoroughly enjoyable read.
