This is a well-done examination of the life and times of Queen Victoria. The author not only follows the life of Queen Victoria, but also summarizes the overall treads that affected the Victorian age from the rigidity of early Victorian morals to the disillusionment of these values at the end of her regime. Primary source materials, as well as extensive secondary materials, were cleverly used to weave a story that I found engrossing and entertaining. Victoria is portrayed as a human being with her strengths and flaws equally balances. My only problem with this book is the lack of a family tree for her immediate family members. I found myself becoming confused with all the players in her life. I recommend this as a good book for anyone interested in the life of Queen Victoria.
