Well written and researched with helpful summaries before each chapter. Liked it so much that I bought the hard copy as well for reference!

If you are a royal history lover this is a book for you. You'll learn more about minor European royalty and family ties. The granddaughter who became a saint, 2 who supposedly married gay men, and the dedication to hospital works and causes. But be warned the name listing of family members at the start of each chapter is about irritating at first, but you soon find you need the lists to keep up with whose who.
An interesting and engaging listen.

I found this book to be a captivating look in to this time period and in to the varied lives of these women.
The pivotal role in which Queen Victoria and her family played across the European royal houses and political climates of the time lead to many fascinating and dramatic stories, some times comic but often very traumatic, as seen through the eyes of her Granddaughters.
Great writing by the author and excellent read by the Narrator kept me gripped throughout, I loved it!

This is one of this rare books that hits the cusp of both suitability as an audio book due to detail (To detailed for the novice - not enough grit or insight for the scholar). This would be an ok book for mindless background fodder except the narrator is clearly set to a metronomic pace that translates as a very slow drone to the listener. Placing the book on 1.25x speed will help the audiobook sound normal
