Reviews

"[I]lluminating Hawksley conveys Louise's story fully and clearly, but just as importantly, she shows the devastating damage Queen Victoria inflicted on her extensive family" --Kirkus

"[A] sympathetic portrait of Queen Victoria's 'unconventional' daughter... Hawksley shows that Louise was 'ahead of her time' in supporting women's rights and was "one of the most intriguing of Victorian women" --Publishers Weekly

"Strong in its presentations of its subject's personality and social circles" --Library Journal

"It's these whispers that make Lucinda Hawksley's new biography such an intriguing prospect.... Satisfyingly replete with eye-popping stories of life at the various palaces.... [I was] caught up with this improbable princess, a beautiful, charming woman."
--The Observer

"Lively, engaging and buoyantly enthusiastic, Hawksley's gallant but necessarily speculative book should encourage the royal archivists to stop being so protective."
--The Sunday Times
