"A biography fit for a queen." --Kirkus, starred review

"For history buffs and fans of historical fiction, this biography allows readers to immerse themselves in 19th-century voices and aesthetics." --School Library Journal "Reef's storytelling is impeccably paced, covering Victoria's eighty-plus years with ease and assurance... This will be a valuable companion for lovers of Victorian period fiction and a satisfying read for biography fans." --Bulletin "Eminently readable with lavish illustrations and photographs, Victoria: Portrait of a Queen is an engrossing biography of the woman for whom the nineteenth century was named the Victorian Age.
