My Dearest, Dearest Albert
Using excerpts from her letters and diaries, this book shows the very human face of Queen Victoria, from spirited young princess to caring Queen, passionate bride and loving mother to great-grandmother of a royal dynasty who gave her name to the age of improvement.
Photographs of Queen Victoria most often show a plump Empress wearing widow’s black; serious and regal. The posed portrait photos were stiff, formal affairs, partly because subjects needed to stay still for the exposure and partly because in Victorian England life was a serious business.
In reality, the character of Alexandrina Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and Ireland, and latterly in her long reign, Empress of India, is rather different. In private, at least, Victoria had a reputation for being fun-loving and entertaining. Victoria kept a daily journal from the age of thirteen, which by the time of her death ran to 122 volumes. She writes openly and in great detail, revealing herself to be emotional and honest about her own feelings and experiences, as well as her opinions of other people. She praises Albert and pours out her love and desire for her husband, her adored lover, friend and companion.
This book shows the redoubtable Victoria at her most human, whether enthusing over her hobbies and interests, delighting in her children and grandchildren, commenting on the ten different Prime Ministers who served during her reign, or sharing her love for her dearest, dearest Albert.
Give a F**k
A funny, wise, practical and expressive guide to caring and compassion – also known as ‘giving a f**k’!
As a unique counter to other ‘f**k’ titles, in which we are encouraged to strive for what we want, our dreams and ambitions, by walking our own individual path, autonomously and without caring what others think, Give A F**k has one important, vital and highly topical theme at its heart: compassion. Otherwise known as caring, AKA giving a f**k. Journalist and life-coach Felicity Morse has turned her smart, witty and informed focus on developing our innate compassion / kindness skills, for the enduring benefit of ourselves, and for the many ways in which we can care for, help, learn from and work with the people and the world around us to achieve profound fulfillment.
Give a F**k covers Self, Relationships, Community and Infinity and Beyond and combines the author’s warm, witty and philosophical narrative with thought-provoking and easy-to-implement emotional and role-play exercises. As a practicing successful life coach, Felicity Morse uses this expertise, along with her unique and entertaining voice to help us conquer our personal obstacles in the path of developing our most caring selves.
