Book:A very British murder, the story of a national obsession:2013
Author: Worsley, Lucy
Year: 2013
Language: English
Type: Book

It's a subject that we have maintained a long and bloody fascination with - the more gruesome the details, the better. But where did this fixation develop? And what does it tell us about ourselves? In this book, Lucy Worsley explores this phenomenon in forensic detail.

Book:My name is Victoria:2017
Author: Worsley, Lucy
Year: 2017
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Miss V. Conroy is good at keeping secrets. She likes to sit as quiet as a mouse, neat and discreet. But when her father sends her to Kensington Palace to become the companion to Princess Victoria, Miss V soon finds that she can no longer remain in the shadows. Miss V's father has devised a strict set of rules for the young princess, which he calls the Kensington System. It governs her behaviour and keeps her locked away from the world. He says it is for the princess's safety, but Victoria herself is convinced that it is to keep her lonely, and unhappy. Torn between loyalty to her father and her growing friendship with the wilful and passionate Victoria, Miss V has a decision to make: to continue in silence, or to speak out.

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Note: Eliza Camperdowne has always known that her fate is to marry a rich man. As the single heiress to her old but impoverished family, this is the only way she can save their beautiful, crumbling castle of Stoneton. With her quick wit and dazzling green eyes, Eliza thinks that she has everything under control. But when she becomes a Maid of Honour at the Tudor court of Henry VIII, she finds herself disastrously underprepared for the treachery and whispers. Eliza doesn't know how to play the games that her glamorous cousin, and rival, Katherine Howard does. And when Katherine wins the heart of the king and becomes the new queen, Eliza must sacrifice any chance of real happiness in order to keep a grave secret - one that could put both her and Katherine's lives in jeopardy.
