Historian Lucy Worsley's experience with England's palaces and royalty provides fodder for her compelling story of Miss V. Conroy, whose father sends her to Kensington Palace to be Princess Victoria's companion. Miss V. is the daughter of Sir John Conroy, creator of the Kensington System, a set of rules designed to control the princess and keep her behind closed doors. Soon Miss V.'s future becomes entwined with the royal family's. The characters provide narrator Henrietta Meire with a number of challenges as she portrays the austere and imperious Sir John and contrasts the calm Miss V. and the high-strung and Victoria, who is German. This imaginative and entertaining historical fiction presents a fresh take on a well-known queen in her youth. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
