My Review: I was glued to this book, what a wonderful story of freedom, friendship and love. Violet and Victoria both know what it’s like to have scheming parents. One is a maid and the other a Queen and yet their friendship, respect and bond run deep. Both women are similar in age, both navigate their worlds and how they respond to their lives. Beautifully written, I couldnt put it down, I just had to know how Violets story turns out. Rachel Brimble did a fabulous job with this story.
Victoria & Violet
It should be a dream come true to serve the Queen of England…
When Violet Parker is told she will be Queen Victoria’s personal housemaid, she cannot believe her good fortune. She finally has the chance to escape her overbearing mother, a servant to the Duchess of Kent.
Violet hopes to explore who she is and what the world has to offer without her mother’s schemes overshadowing her every thought and action.
Then she meets James Greene, assistant to the queen’s chief political adviser, Lord Melbourne. From entirely different backgrounds and social class, Violet and James should have neither need nor desire to speak to one another, yet through their service, their paths cross and their lives merge—as do their feelings.
Only Victoria’s court is not always the place for romance, but rather secrets, scandals, and conspiracies…
