After finishing my book on Queen Victoria, I was left feeling very disappointed. The book, which I had hoped to be a detailed biography was merely the writer’s opinion of the Queen.
Queen Victoria: Icon Of An Era, by Michael W. Simmons, promised so much, and yet really was a disappointment!
The book begins in Victoria’s youth and ends as Albert dies. However, there was no history, merely the writer’s opinions.
So, after watching Young Victoria, with Emily Blount and Rupert Friend (Homeland’s Quinn),
I started watching the PBS version called Victoria.
Oh well. At least for now I am enjoying binge-watching PBS’s “Victoria” on this frosty cold winter weekend!
