Winner of the 2013 Elizabeth Longford Prize for Historical Biography "A spirited and extremely convincing defense of . . . an unlikely queen." --The New York Times Book Review "History at its best. . . . A grand achievement. . . . If ever a work of history managed to be 'definitive' and yet great fun to read, this is it." --The Daily Beast "A triumph of research and empathy. . . . Here, in brilliant detail, unfolds the passionate highs and tragic lows of a woman who fought to place her own mark in history." --Amanda Foreman, author of Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire "A meticulously crafted view from the cockpit of power. . . . Queen Anne, Somerset shows, deserves fresh respect." --Times Literary Supplement (London) "Definitive. . . . Clearly the fullest, best and most sympathetic account of Queen Anne yet written." --Evening Standard (UK)

"Wonderfully pacy and absorbing." --Daily Mail (UK) "Formidable. . . . It is has taken immense patience and skill . . . to create a new and subtler image of the last of the Stuart monarchs. Anne Somerset has done a real service both to us and to her namesake." --Sunday Times (London) "Sympathetic and engaging. . . . Somerset brings Anne's anxious and dutiful character to life with delicacy." --Daily Express (UK)

"Magisterial . . . incisive and compelling." --Country Life "Fascinating and rewarding. . . . In this excellent biography [Queen] Anne's reputation is reclaimed." --Sunday Express (UK)

"Excellent. . . . It is time to think differently about Queen Anne." --Mail on Sunday (UK)
