Through the prism of Queen Victoria's last 23 days, from her final journey to Osborne House to her funeral, Tony Rennell presents a series of resonant and absorbing snapshots of a nation coping with change, balancing nostalgia with the Victorian Age and the arrival of a new order.Such was the anxiety of the government and the royal family about the prospect of the Queen's death that the news of her illness was deliberately concealed from the public for more than a week. When news of her death came, people wept in the streets from London, England, to Kingston, Jamaica, and beyond. This grief was surpassed only by fear for the future for the Queen's death seemed to signal the end of an era more significantly than even the turn of the century just a year earlier.
