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, Sir John Conroy, confidant and financial advisor to Victoria's mother, has devised a strict set of rules for the young princess, which he calls the Kensington System. It governs her behavior 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 willful and passionate princess, Miss V has a decision to make: to continue in silence or to speak out.
By turns thrilling, dramatic, and touching, this is the story of Queen Victoria's childhood as you've never heard it before.
