Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of November 2016: For a monarch, there's perhaps no greater historical compliment than to have a time period named after you. Daisy Goodwin, author of The American Heiress, spotlights Victoria's earliest moments on the throne, from the days before her coronation, to her first clash with Parliament and the venerable Lord Wellington, and finally the moment when she proposes to her cousin, Prince Albert. As the 18-year-old queen assumes her regal duties, Victoria discovers the limitations of her governmental powers even as she spreads her wings as a woman who has escaped out from under her mother's thumb and can finally rule herself. There are dramatic missteps along the way, and more than once the reader may find Victoria unsympathetic. However, Goodwin does a deft job in her novelization of Victoria's first two years as monarch, exploring the emotional challenges for a young, sheltered woman who now sits on the throne of a powerful country. Some personages are little more than cardboard, but those who matter in this narrative—Lord Melbourne, Prince Albert, and Victoria herself—are penned with more detail, revealing an appealing and vulnerable side to a queen later viewed as nigh unassailable. —Adrian Liang, The Amazon Book Review

Review

“Victoria is an absolutely captivating novel of youth, love, and the often painful transition from immaturity to adulthood. Daisy Goodwin breathes new life into Victoria's story, and does so with sensitivity, verve, and wit.”
–Amanda Foreman

“Highly recommended...Bestselling Goodwin always draws in fans.”
Booklist

“[Victoria] will sweep you away. It sumptuously brings to life the tale of Victoria's ascension to the throne, her battles with her mother and her relationship with her Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne. I loved the detail in this novel, and tore through it.”
Stylist (UK)

“A hit…The research is impeccable, the attention to detail—from protocol to petticoats—perfect, and it brings the formidable figure of Victoria to sparkling life.”
Sunday Mirror (UK)

Additional Praise for Daisy Goodwin

“Ms. Goodwin writes deliciously.”
–Janet Maslin, The New York Times on The American Heiress

“A shrewd, spirited historical romance with flavors of Edith Wharton, Daphne du Maurier, Jane Austen,Upstairs, Downstairs, and a dash of People magazine...Superior entertainment.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred) on The American Heiress

“Gorgeous...the perfect storm of escapism, suspense, romance, and superb historical research.” 
The Times (UK) on The Fortune Hunter

“A luxurious indulgence...Goodwin writes with effortless grace, and her dialogue's subtle wit is delightful.”
Booklist on The Fortune Hunter
