KIRKUS REVIEW

A fiction handling of the one-sided love story of the Queen and her Prince consort and the marriage which relegated Albert to a leisure time companionship pursues the influence Melbourne exerted to give Albert more chance to work with her. Through the stormy international questions, Palmerston's troublesome disobediences, their disappointment in young Bertie and the fluctuations of Victoria's popularity, is her devotion to Albert and his lack of success with her subjects until the final illness which broke her heart. A sympathetic picture of a marriage which makes its royalty human in their frailties and their strengths.
