Prisoners in the Palace
[September 1, 2010]
London, 1838. Sixteen-year-old Liza's dreams of her society debut are dashed when her parents are killed in an accident. Penniless, she accepts the position of lady's maid to young Princess Victoria and steps unwittingly into the gossipy intrigue of the servant's world below-stairs as well as the trickery above. Is it possible that her changing circumstances may offer Liza the chance to determine her own fate, find true love, and secure the throne for her future queen?
Meticulously based on newly discovered information, this riveting novel is as rich in historical detail as Catherine, Called Birdy, and as sizzling with intrigue as The Luxe.
Ever since falling in love with the Young Victoria, I've been wanting to learn more. And this book does tricks! It has a special cover and under the dust slip it has this cool cover...you have to see it for yourself. Needless to say, I had to have it! And it didn't disappoint.
I can't pinpoint why I loved this book. I wasn't crazy about how Victoria was portrayed. It may be how she really was, but she was shown in a different light in the movie and I preferred that way. But I loved the plot and the romance and...just so much about this book!
I wish I could say more, but I put off writing this review for so long, I'm not sure I can! But this has my stamp of approval!
