Editorial Reviews

Review

“A Magnificent Obsession will immerse you in history . . . Rappaport's book brings alive an almost forgotten time. A must-read if you love British history.” ―British Weekly

“A fluid and astute writer, Rappaport delivers a historically discerning portrait of Victoria in the 1860s.” ―Booklist

“Rappaport offers an absorbing, perceptive, and detailed picture of a constitutional monarchy in crisis.” ―Publishers Weekly

“An absorbing account of the making of a queen through her awful, protracted grief.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“As shocking and immediate as a thriller. . . . [A] gripping read.” ―People magazine (3 ½ stars) on The Last Days of the Romanovs

“Quite simply, stunning. . . . Chilling and poignant, this is how history books should be written.” ―Alison Weir, author of Henry VIII: The King and His Court, on The Last Days of the Romanovs
