Industry Reviews

Such a brilliant idea! Drilling down into Victoria's diaries Worsley gives us Victoria in all her infinite variety - queen and mother, matriarch and minx...I loved it. - Daisy Goodwin, author, and creator of ITV's Victoria

The glory of this book is in the details, and the specific moments, that Worsley chooses to single out for mention, and in her cheerful voice as she leads us by the hand to the next window of Victoria's life calendar. - The Times

A wonderfully fresh, vivid and engaging portrait of Victoria. - Jane Ridley, author of Bertie: A Life of Edward VII

Praise for Jane Austen at Home:

This is my kind of history: carefully researched but so vivid that you are convinced Lucy Worsley was actually there at the party - or the parsonage. - Antonia Fraser

Jane Austen at Home offers a fascinating look at Jane Austen's world through the lens of the homes in which she lived and worked throughout her life. The result is a refreshingly unique perspective on Austen and her work and a beautifully nuanced exploration of gender, creativity, and domesticity. - Amanda Foreman

A vivid portrait of Jane Austen. A must for any Austenite. - Red Magazine

Brilliant and very moving, this book is a fascinating and original exploration of Jane Austen with lots of new material - Worsley brings Austen to life superbly, through her pages she is a flesh and blood woman, intelligent, powerful, contradictory, loving, loved. A magnificent book. - Kate Williams
