This is set up as a journal written by Queen Victoria during her last year. She writes of her entire life interspered with comments about the political and family happenings of the day (the Boer War, etc.)
I found it to be an interesting book with more of the humor than one typically thinks of in relation to Victoria. (One of the most frightening pictures I have ever seen is of Victoria as an old lady smiling.)
The life of Victoria lends itself well to this treatment as she lived such a long and public life.
