“They think I am still a little girl who is not capable of being a ueen”Lord Melbourne turned to look at Victoria “They are mistaken I have not known you long but I observe in you a natural dignity that cannot be learnt To me ma’am you are every inch a ueen”In less than a month after her eighteenth birthday Alexandrina Victoria – sheltered small in stature and female – became ueen of Great Britain and Ireland Many thought it was preposterous Alexandrina Drina to her family had always A coming of age story But with crown jewelsPrincess Alexandrina Victoria or Drina as her family calls her knows that she will be ueen one day A complicated line of succession has cleared her path to the throne but she can only hope her ailing uncle the current king holds on until her eighteenth birthday Because like many teenagers this princess is looking to get away from her overprotective motherWhen she's crowned she takes on a new name Victoria and finally gets her own bedroom She pulls away from her mother and her mother's power hungry personal companion and instead leans heavily on her prime minister the charming but scandal ridden Lord Melbourne Victoria's relationship with the man she affectionately dubs Lord M grows from a student teacher dynamic into a friendship and then into something There's a lot of pressure on the ueen to find a husband and settle into a family The thinking of the time was that young women were prone to a serious medical condition known as hysteria marriage and motherhood were the only known cure But even being the monarch of a great empire does not mean a young woman can marry just anyone The powers that be have decided it's her destiny to marry her cousin gag Prince Albert Too bad Victoria finds Albert bland and uninspiringHistorical fiction isn't my favorite genre but this book focused a bit on romance and family drama than it did on history The timeline of the book centers on the two years between ueen Victoria's coronation and her engagement and not a great deal happens of historical significance in that window I certainly did not feel transported back to the early nineteenth century while reading this It was pretty light on period details I wouldn't say I loved this book but it was nice enough to read The writing is just ok and it did have a bit of a YA feel to it My 4 star rating is a lack of finding anything wrong with this book as opposed to finding much right So even though this was a bit of a lightweight for me my interest is piued and I'm excited to watch the show when it airs on PBSI received a copy of this book courtesy of the publisher and NetGalley

VictoriaBeen tightly controlled by her mother and her household and was surely too unprepossessing to hold the throne Yet from the moment William IV died the young ueen startled everyone abandoning her hated first name in favor of Victoria insisting for the first time in her life on sleeping in a room apart from her mother resolute about meeting with her ministers aloneOne of those ministers Lord Melbourne became Victoria’s private secretary Perhaps he might have become than that except everyone argued she w 35 stars Well this was just pure reading pleasure More historical romance than historical fiction Victoria swirls around the early days of the English monarch's reign her struggles for independence and her attachment to Prime Minister Lord Melbourne that sparked many rumours Although there were times that I wavered in liking the depiction of Victoria as an angst ridden teenager with acrush on a much older man I lapped it all up Like other reviewers I would have liked an author's note to explain certain writing decisions in the book
