Finished this on the way back home after dropping my aunt off at the airport (😭). A fantastic read for those who loved the Masterpiece series, though this volume only covers season 1.

In this book, historian & author Helen Rappaport illuminates the central figures in Victoria‘s life, including her family, her court, & her household staff. In short chapters, Rappaport shares a lot of info on Victoria, those around her, & England during her initial time as queen. In short, this book is a good reference & a glimpse at the woman who gave her name to one of the most productive ages in history. - Katina, Area Librarian #royalreads

Lovely pictures from the series. I didn't post the front cover, but the back because I think it is such a lovely and unique point of view. I'm listening to the audiobook by Daisy Goodwin too. 👑
