Editorial Reviews

*Michael Nelson fully appreciates the subtle relationships between the private and the public, even in the life of imperial sovereigns, and his highly readable book will interest different kinds of readers. For me it is rich in texture as, I believe, it will be for them.*--Lord Asa Briggs*A distinctly original contribution to the studies of Queen Victoria. Those sections covering the extraordinary people the Queen met on the Riviera are most moving and human.*--Elizabeth Longford*This is a book full of fascinating and well-documented information.*--Roy Jenkins*One would hardly expect yet another book on Queen Victoria to be amusing, but this one's a rare treat.*--Gail Benjafield, Library Journal*...an enjoyable portrait of one of the modern era's most important monarchs.*--Publishers Weekly  *A well-researched and highly readable account of the Sovereign’s love affair with the South of France…a great book which deserves a wide readership.* – The Riviera Reporter *This enjoyable and knowledgeable book explores many aspects of the later Victorian period from a new angle, and in a new context. It is particularly illuminating on the relations between Britain and France at this time, an area to which not enough attention is paid.* -- Jacqueline Banerjee, The Victorian Web
