St. Martin's Press, 1998
Well researched and entertainingly written, Victoria's Daughters closely follows a generation of royal women who, unfortunate to be born female, were dominated by their own mother, married more for political correctness than for love, and were passed over for the throne. Packard provides valuable insights the complex, oft-tragic lives of the women, as well as of one of the most powerful queens in history. 16 pp of photos.
