London, 1838. Sixteen-year-old Liza’s dreams of her society debut are
dashed when her parents are killed in an accident. Penniless, she accepts
the position of lady’s maid to young Princess Victoria and steps unwittingly
into the gossipy intrigue of the servants’ world below-stairs and the rampant
trickery above. Is it possible that her changing circumstances may offer
Liza the chance to determine her own fate, find true love, and secure the
throne for her future queen? Meticulously based on newly discovered
information, this engrossing novel is as rich in historical detail as Catherine,
Called Birdy
, and as sizzling with intrigue as The Luxe.
