Victoria by Daisy Goodwin
In June 1837, the eighteen-year-old Victoria wakes up to find that she is Queen of the most powerful nation in the world. But will she be Queen in her own right, or a puppet controlled by her mother and the sinister Sir John Conway? Everyone wants her to get married, but Victoria has no intention of entering into a marriage of convenience with her cousin Albert, a shy bookworm who on their last meeting didn’t even know how to dance. She would much rather reign alone with a little help from her Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne. He is the only man who believes she will be a great Queen, and he knows how to make her laugh. A husband would only get in the way….
