A highly enjoyable read, it gave enough details to bring Christie to life for me but didn't fall into the "and then the next day" trap. Worsely focuses on particular moments more than others that seem to tease out more of who Christie was and the forces that shaped her. I knew the rough picture of her life and have seen and heard Worsley doing the book circuit but there was plenty that was new and interesting. I was fascinated by her somewhat confusing extended family and how she welcomes those not directly related to her into it. She seems to have a been a mostly quiet private person and I am impressed that Worsley was able to tease out little facts that explain her better. After reading a less than enjoyable fiction by Worsley, perhaps I need to delve more into her history.… (mere)

I started out enjoying this YA fiction about young Princess Victoria and the daughter of Sir John Conroy, also Victoria and their unlikely friendship. It is told from Miss V.'s (as Victoria Conroy is known) point of view and shows a rather terrifying emotional storm of life for you future Queen Victoria.

Her afterword explains that she found this an interesting fantastical story to explore but it just lost me. I think I will stick to her non-fiction.… (mere)
