Contemporary customs and royal politics round out the narrative to provide an intriguing glimpse into the girlhood of one of the most powerful women in European history as imagined by one of Britain’s most popular historians. A brilliant blend of historical fact and artistic license.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Worsley’s expertise in the subject creates an intimate story accurate enough to feel plausible…those intrigued by Queen Victoria or historical fiction will find this volume moving. Give to teens who are ready to graduate from the “Royal Diary” series. A rich and moving historical fiction about one of England’s best-known monarchs; recommended for fans of Carolyn Meyer and Michaela MacColl.
—School Library Journal

This suspenseful, entertaining tale presents a view of the young Queen Victoria as seen through the eyes of Victoria Conroy…Miss V’s seven-year tenure with Victoria is marked by suspicions, tensions, revelations, and unexpected alliances; the girls’ physical similarity to each other develops alongside their friendship, making for a deliciously surprising and satisfying ending.
—Publishers Weekly

Worsley (Maid of the King’s Court, 2017), the chief curator at Historic Royal Palaces, digs into the details of the time period with aplomb, offering up a slice-of-life examination of pre-Victorian England…for history buffs, the period details will fascinate.
—Booklist Online

Author Worsley, curator for England’s historic royal palaces, brings to live those inhabiting Kensington Palace, as well as the other residences where Victoria lived before becoming queen. She’s given this story historical relevance and accuracy, while weaving a delightful fantasy about the woman who became one of the United Kingdom’s most famous monarchs.
