Have read a few books on Victoria's children but did not know a lot about her extended family.
The book is very interesting and really brings her family to life, all the arguments and troubles they had, and traumas.
Written in an easy to read way, one of the most interesting books I have read. Got very absorbed, and looked forward to going to bed to read it! Highly recommended.

Well written, with lots of references to original sources and correspondence, A useful reminder of the 'players' at the start of each chapter, which I found very helpful as the history unfolds. An eloquent writing style - very easy to read and understand.

This book is amazing, but thank goodness the author put a "crib" of nicknames at the beginning of each chapter, otherwise it would be unreadable - hence the 4 stars. The Romanov tragedy is well-told, and it was really interesting to know what happened to all the cousins in the end. Recommended.

I would highly recommend this book as it gives a fascinating incite into the lives of the European royal families in a period of history that was to lead to a war that would change leadership in Europe forever. Although there are a lot of family members to keep track of the author gives a quick recap at the start of each chapter. It also made me view Queen Victoria in a different light due to her relationships with her grandchildren. I felt the book made history more personal and accessible.

I found the book very detailed and interesting. With so many members of the extended Royal Family, the similarity of names can be confusing. No doubt this is why they were mostly known by their nicknames. Each member has her own chapter, although being family they all flit all over the place in the book. Each chapter, however, starts off with a list of the chapter's 'cast' as it were, and this is very helpful for my memory at least. I am sure it will also provide useful reference for many years.Congrats to Ms Croft for all the research and effort, which has had to be done, to produce a book on what I consider to be a very difficult subject.

An interesting and informative read, similar to other books about Queen Victoria's children. It makes a change to focus on the women of the families and their role in major events of the 19th and 20th centuries. Each chapter included a list of the people covered in that chapter and their relationships, which was very helpful, because there were a lot of them, often with similar names. If you enjoyed Queen Victoria's Children or A Hessian Tapestry you will enjoy this.

For someone so interested in such a relatively esoteric subject as Queen Victoria's granddaughters, I was excited to receive the book, and indeed enjoyed it; it's hardly exhaustive (and couldn't be with so many varied characters), but it gives a good intro.
However, never had I before felt more compelled to take a pencil and correct a book than with this one! First of all, the punctuation is dreadful with random commas and articles thrown about everywhere, words repeated next to each other, or words simply missing from the text; furthermore, the *-symbol indicating footnotes was miniscule; indeed, I barely even knew where in the text to find it until I read the footnote and located the relevant place myself! I therefore presume editing was non-existent!

Punctuation would be excusable if there weren't some glaring factual errors too.
