Queen Victoria, From her Birth to the Death of the Prince Consort by Cecil Woodham-Smith

Absolutely outstanding material. Written in a literary style and solid on the facts of the case. The author has a strong feel for personality and makes the people and events come alive as if they were a remarkably good movie. Im VERY hard to please with biographies so you can be assured this book is as good as they come.
Theres only one complaint I have to make. The author stated an opinion that Prince Albert showed signs of mental decline when he wrote an angry letter to his son after his son had been involved in an illicit affair. I disagree that objecting to such behavior is an indication of mental deterioration, and no arguments about how it was different in those olden days will hold water with me. Irresponsible behavior is always irresponsible behavior, and individual people will continue thinking so regardless of the age in which they live. :)
But other than that this is a terrific book and well worth reading.
