My Name is Victoria

Intriguing 'what if' look into what might have happened if Sir John Conway's daughter wasn't an enemy, but dear friend of Queen Victoria.

What worked: I love historical fiction and this story is a fascinating look into the childhood of Queen Victoria. Readers seen the Queen as a child through the eyes of her companion, Miss V Conroy, daughter of Sir John Conroy, confidant and financial advisor to Victoria's mother. There's very strict rules at Kensington Palace that Sir John Conroy has devised to keep Victoria locked away from the world. Miss V grows close to Victoria and sees things that she feels are wrong. I really liked the struggle Miss V goes through with her growing loyalty to the future queen and her demanding father.

There's court intrigue, rumors of royalty family secrets, and a very strong, passionate princess locked away in a palace. I really loved the twist in this historical story of what would have happened if Miss V had in fact been a close friend and played more of an important part in Victoria's life.


A must read for fans of historical fiction and those who love the TV series. Lots of great insights into the woman who would become one of Great Britain's queens.

Good Points
1. Fascinating look into the childhood of Queen Victoria of Great Britain
2. Intriguing 'what if' look into what might have happened if Sir John Conway's daughter wasn't an enemy but dear friend of Queen Victoria.
