Victoria

7 Jan

I loved this book – which is the basis of a series about to premiere on Masterpiece/PBS. Daisy Goodwin, a writer and television producer (and poetry anthologist  says Wikipedia), does a marvelous job of bringing this iconic Queen to life, starting with her as a young girl required to step into the position.

Nicely fleshed out characters, making Victoria come alive, and giving the reader a whole different appreciation for the woman often only perceived as a stodgy old woman.

Read this book ASAP and then get ready for a delicious visual experience with the show. Yum.

I received this in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.
