Principally researched at the houses and palaces of its five subjects in London, Scotland, Berlin, Darmstadt, and Ottawa - and entertainingly written by an experienced biographer whose last book concerned Victoria's final days - Victoria's Daughters closely examines a generation of royal women who were dominated by their mother, married off as much for political advantage as for love, and finally passed over entirely with the accession of their brother Bertie to the throne. Jerrold M. Packard provides valuable insights into their complex, oft-tragic lives as daughters of their time.

How did the narrator detract from the book?
Does the narrator know how to read punctuation? There are pauses in weird places and an flat, dull delivery. I was so looking forward to this book, but the narration ruined it for me.

Although I find the story interesting, the narrator is making it difficult for me to focus on anything except how poorly she read the book. I don’t think I can continue listening to it. She has expression... but it is the SAME expression no matter what she is reading. Her inflection doesn’t match what she is saying quite often so I feel like she is simply reading words and hasn’t bothered to familiarize herself with them first. My first Audible disappointment.
