Synopsis

This witty historical novel follows 17-year-old Fanny's journey to London for the six weeks of coronation festivities in the summer of 1838, when young Victoria assumes the throne in England. Happily the pomp and pageantry of London do little to distract Fanny from the more familiar concerns of matchmaking and courtship.
