  1. Jade Miller

    Luv’s well informed creative telling of the lives of the royals is light yet disruptive in it’s transparentcy. Must read!

  2. Clare McHugh

    This first novel is sprightly and very well-informed, It tells a poignant story and is great for anyone interested in Queen Victoria and her family, and specifically her eldest daughter Vicky, later Crown Princess of Prussia and Empress of Germany

  3. Michael Henry

    The book tells the story of Vicky and Fritz in their younger lives which is not done very often.
    The story line is carried very well with lively and interesting dialogue.
    The author tells a story that is different from most we are familiar with and it takes some interesting turns which keep us in suspense.
    I would recommend this book to any person interested in European royalty and specifically Queen Victoria’s family.

  4. Victoria Babinski

    An alternative story based on the early relationship of Vicky and Fritz. The author takes you on an intimate journey through the life and role of the Royal family, and invites you to share hidden secrets and private details that are rarely made public. A great first read.

    Royalty at its finest!
    This story transcended me to a place of noble and palatial surroundings, namely Balmoral and Osborne. I thoroughly enjoyed learning the characteristics of the royal family of England. I fell in love with the Queen and King and how their lives differed from Prussia’s and other Monarchy. They genuinely loved each other, unlike most royal marriages. I was also enamored by Princess Vicky and her lover, Prince Fritz. Their characters were similar to the King and Queen of England. I especially love the courtship and how the author draws you into this beautiful romance. Reading this book gave me knowledge about kingship and the complications of vying for dictatorship among relatives. It was the first time I ever heard of the word “Morganatic,” which means a marriage in which neither the spouse of lower rank nor any children have any claim to the possessions or title of the spouse of higher rank. Gasp! I never knew there was such a word for that. Anyway, this was a great story as I have always been fascinated by the lifestyles of the royal families.
