Editorial Reviews

Review

“Rappaport’s text beautifully and chronologically guides the reader through the early years of Victoria’s reign… This is a volume fans of the Masterpiece series will look at again and again.” (Newark Star Ledger)

“A marvelous companion to this series, with wonderful illustrations and an engaging backstory…” (New York Journal of Books)

From the Back Cover

Discover the world of the young Victoria, a world of court drama, sumptuous splendor, and the epic tale of an unexpected queen.

At only eighteen years old, Victoria was a rebellious and headstrong teenager when she ascended the throne as Queen of Great Britain, but she grew to become one of the most memorable, unshakable, and powerful women in history. Tracing the coming-of-age of one of Britain’s greatest monarchs, this official companion to the Masterpiece series on PBS reveals her triumphs over scandal and corruption, and the intimate loves, heartbreaking losses, fallouts, and family dramas that accompanied her early reign.

Written by internationally bestselling author and Victoria historical consultant Helen Rappaport, and including a foreword by Daisy Goodwin—acclaimed novelist and screenwriter of the series—Victoria details the history behind the show. It includes fascinating letters from the Queen, her family, confidants, and Prince Albert, offering truly authentic insight into the private life of the young Queen and the inner workings of the royal household, and painting a vivid picture of life in Victorian England.

Go behind the palace doors and discover the girl behind the Queen, as you’ve never seen her before.
