Prisoners in the Palace by Michaela MacColl
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
16 year old Liza's dreams are dashed when her parents die in a carriage accident and leave her penniless. Desperate she accepts a position as young Princess Victoria's maid and discovers Kennisgton Palace is full of intrigue and plots. Liza is determined to help the young princess knowing that her future is now tied to the the princess who will be Queen.
This book was intriguing from the start. Focusing less on the future queen and more on the life of her maid Liza you discover a London were the help have few rights and even fewer options especially if the help are females.
While reading the book I discovered the story is based on a new information about Queen Victoria's life before she became Queen of England.
A fast and easy read that will suck you in quickly.
