I really enjoyed this one. Rosalynn Landor is one of my favorite narrators and this title was really worthy of her.
Gillian Gill manages to create a picture of Victoria and Albert that I had never seen. She provides us the portrait of a marriage between two people, not between an icon of queenly dignity and her idolized mate. I actually cried a little when Albert died. That's pretty rare for me with historical non-fiction.

This book gives an accurate view of the ups and downs in the Queen's marriage and an alarming view of the ambition and power the Prince wrested from the Queen. It is possibly a blessing that his life was cut short as he was determined to change England to suit his German ambitions. I was disappointed in Victoria's lack of interest in her position and what a contrast to our present Queen who has been a true monarch with unfailing loyalty and dedication.
