Osborne House, 1879. Queen Victoria has occupied the British throne for over 40 years. Bringing together her extended family from across Europe offers a chance for old alliances to be strengthened and new unions to be forged. May Teck, daughter of a duke and princess, is constantly reminded that she lacks the pedigree to be a true royal.
Alicky lives in the shadow of her older siblings, until she meets the heir to the Russian throne, who sweeps her off to his homeland. And then there is Willy, destined to be the future kaiser of Germany. As shifting forces of power send warning ripples across Europe, an unavoidable war looms on the horizon....
