Product description

Review

Such a brilliant idea! Drilling down into Victoria's diaries Worsley gives us Victoria in all her infinite variety - queen and mother, matriarch and minx...I loved it. (Daisy Goodwin, author, and creator of ITV's Victoria)

A wonderfully fresh, vivid and engaging portrait of Victoria. (
Jane Ridley, author of Bertie: A Life of Edward VII)

The glory of this book is in the details, and the specific moments, that Worsley chooses to single out for mention, and in her cheerful voice as she leads us by the hand to the next window of Victoria's life calendar. (
The Times)

Queen Victoria has much of the abundant charm of its author (A.N. Wilson Spectator)

The latest from historian Worsley is an insightful, sympathetic, and vividly written examination of the "good woman" who ruled England for 64 years... Worsley's command of the material and elegant writing style make this a must-read for anyone interested in the British monarchy. (
Publisher's Weekly)

Praise for
Jane Austen at Home:

This is my kind of history: carefully researched but so vivid that you are convinced Lucy Worsley was actually there at the party - or the parsonage. (
Antonia Fraser)

Jane Austen at Home offers a fascinating look at Jane Austen's world through the lens of the homes in which she lived and worked throughout her life. The result is a refreshingly unique perspective on Austen and her work and a beautifully nuanced exploration of gender, creativity, and domesticity. (
Amanda Foreman)

A vivid portrait of Jane Austen. A must for any Austenite. (
Red Magazine)

Brilliant and very moving, this book is a fascinating and original exploration of Jane Austen with lots of new material - Worsley brings Austen to life superbly, through her pages she is a flesh and blood woman, intelligent, powerful, contradictory, loving, loved. A magnificent book. (
Kate Williams)

Rarely, if ever, will you encounter a historian so in command of their material. Truly, this is a dazzling exercise in persuasion, written with sense and sensibility. (
Saturday Express)

A deep, prolifically researched dive into the houses, vacation homes, and schools where the author spent her life. (
Vogue Magazine)

Worsley offers us much that Austen's admirers wish to know... [she] is entirely convincing. (
New York Times)

An interesting portrait of Georgian and Regency material culture. There's much intriguing historical detail. (
Literary Review)

A sprightly new take on Austen's life. (
Mail on Sunday) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
