Victoria by Daisy Goodwin

Victoria by Daisy Goodwin

January 28, 2017 Whitney Review 1 Comment

Outside of Emily Blunt’s performance of Queen Victoria she is a monarch I know very little about.  Daisy Goodwin has created a tapestry in sharing this young Victoria’s early reign. At first, her ascent to the throne read like something out of a Tudor novel with constant conniving and scheming to reach the top and […]

Hello From the Gillespies by Monica McInerney

Hello From the Gillespies by Monica McInerney

January 6, 2017 Whitney Review 0 Comments

I thought Hello From the Gillespies by Monica McInerney would be a cute Christmas read with a slice of drama.
