Remember that great history professor you had in college, the one who blew off the dust and brought the past to life? She's back, in the enthusiastic narration of Nelson Runger, who understands, not only Carolly Erickson's skillfully woven biography and a century of European history, but also the motivations and emotions in the life of the beloved Queen Victoria. Runger's appreciation for the story remains evident through the accounts of political intrigue, military leadership, romantic passion, motherly cares and even the ruler's pets. Reader and author pay equal attention to Her Majesty's foibles. Far from wanting this lecture to be over, the listener eagerly wants more. R.P.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
