KIRKUS REVIEW

An interpreted, personalized history of Charlotte, the daughter of the prince regent, heavily accents the vaporings, trepidations and womanly behavior that were a part of the early 19th century. Charlotte was early cognizant of her position as heiress to the throne and the dangers from her mother and her scandalous affairs, from her grandmother, and from the political areas of Whigs and Tories. Charlotte did achieve the marriage she wanted however but died with her baby in childbirth. Pages of history turned slowly offer a second look at a young, likable, sometimes confused girl-with warm affection. The youth of the heroine and the era in which she lived makes this a suitable choice for this audience.
