        "Victoria is an absolutely captivating novel of youth, love, and the often painful transition from immaturity to adulthood. Daisy Goodwin breathes new life into Victoria's story, and does so with sensitivity, verve, and wit." –Amanda Foreman “An absolute dream of a read – charming, shrewd and well paced.” —The Virginian-Pilot/5(36).   In the end, it is hard to do justice to such a long life and reign, even in a book of this length. Some many names go by, so many people are born and die, it’s hard to keep track of it all if you’re not already familiar with the era. Still, even getting a glimpse into the world of Victoria and the woman herself is a pleasure worth having/5().
