Publisher's Summary

“The girl, the wife, the aged woman, were the same: vitality, conscientiousness, pride, and simplicity were hers to the latest hour.” 

A remarkably fresh and engaging account of Britain’s long-reigning monarch, Queen Victoria, who ascended to the throne at 18, in 1837, and died in 1901. Lytton Strachey captures her essential spirit in concise and elegant prose, with an eye and an ear keenly attuned to human nature, and its foibles. 

The portraits he draws of Victoria’s husband, Albert, her family members, and the procession of Prime Ministers, beginning with her beloved Lord M, are vivid and trenchant. 

Written only 20 years after her death, this biography exemplifies the emergence of modern thought from the Victorian Era.

Poor choice by excellent narrator

I didn't enjoy it. The usually excellent Kate Reading was hard to listen to here. Happy to support her, though .

Kate Reading is victorious

Kate Reading's dulcet tones brought this biography to life in ways I can hardly credit. Fabulous all around, and highly recommended.
