There has been no shortage of books written about Queen Victoria, and yet historians continue to offer fresh, fascinating perspectives on the monarch whose influence still reverberates today. In this absorbing biography, historian and chief curator of Historic Royal Palaces Lucy Worsley offers readers two dozen "snapshots" of Victoria: twenty-four chapters, each dedicated to a specific date in her life and each reflecting how her personal life and relationships informed her reign. From her parents' wedding day in 1818 and her near-death from typhoid in 1835 to her wedding day in 1840 and her husband's death in 1861 to a battle of wills over her personal staff in 1897 and her death in 1901, Queen Victoria paints a nuanced portrait of a complicated woman.
