This very readable account of Victoria’s early years is timed to coincide with PBS’ Masterpiece presentation. It hits all the high spots to those familiar with Victoria’s life, adding some imaginary conversations and physical reactions to Albert that hint at Victoria’s sensual appreciation of him as a man. It never hints at how utterly boring her court and her private life were, but instead puts its focus on the joy of being a young queen in love.
