At only 18 years old, Victoria ascended the throne of Britain as a rebellious teenager and gradually grew to become one of the most memorable, unshakeable, and powerful women in history. The extensive writings she left behind document this personal journey and show how she triumphed over scandal, corruption, and heartbreak. The official companion to the ongoing PBS Masterpiece series, this illustrated book delves into the private writings of the young Queen Victoria, painting a vivid picture of the personal life of one of England's greatest monarchs. Additional text is provided by the show's historical consultant, Helen Rappaport, while the foreword is by its screenwriter, Daisy Goodwin.
