*******************************

Who was Queen Victoria?

A little old lady, potato-like in appearance, dressed in everlasting black? She was also a passionate young princess who loved dancing. And there is also a third Victoria, the brilliant queen, one who invented a new role for the monarchy.

Victoria found a way of ruling when people were deeply uncomfortable with having a woman on the throne.

Her image as a conventional daughter, wife and widow concealed the reality of a talented, instinctive politician. Her actions, if not her words, reveal that she was tearing up the rules on how to be female. But the price of this was deep personal pain.

By looking in detail at twenty-four days of her life, through diaries, letters and more, we meet Queen Victoria up-close and personal. Living with her from hour to hour, we can see and celebrate the contradictions that make up British history's most recognisable woman.

Review:

Such a brilliant idea! Drilling down into Victoria's diaries Worsley gives us Victoria in all her infinite variety - queen and mother, matriarch and minx...I loved it. (Daisy Goodwin, author, and creator of ITV's Victoria)

A wonderfully fresh, vivid and engaging portrait of Victoria. (Jane Ridley, author of Bertie: A Life of Edward VII)

The glory of this book is in the details, and the specific moments, that Worsley chooses to single out for mention, and in her cheerful voice as she leads us by the hand to the next window of Victoria's life calendar. (The Times)

Queen Victoria has much of the abundant charm of its author (A.N. Wilson Spectator)

In this lively, light-footed biography, just out in paperback, the popular TV historian Lucy Worsley looks at just 24 days of Victoria's 81-year long life to reveal unexpected sides to the monarch. (BBC History Magazine)

The latest from historian Worsley is an insightful, sympathetic, and vividly written examination of the "good woman" who ruled England for 64 years... Worsley's command of the material and elegant writing style make this a must-read for anyone interested in the British monarchy. (Publishers Weekly)

An intimate glimpse (Daily Mail)

Lucy Worsley brings our most iconic of monarchs to life with this intimate and sympathetic portrayal... Even if you know Victoria's story, there's more to discover in this insightful biography. (Woman's Weekly)

An engaging portrait of the monarch (i paper)

Praise for Jane Austen at Home:
