• Entertaining, moving, consistently gripping... unputdownable

    Val Hennessy, Daily Mail
  • Lively and well written... she has built up a convincing and moving picture of the role of women in creating the Empire, and in keeping the show on the road

    Mary Warnock, Sunday Telegraph
  • Trollope uses superb sepia photographs to summon up the great Victorian heroines... who sought in the colonies, and sometimes found, adventure, butterflies, Christian souls or husbands

    Linda Colley, Sunday Times
  • Illustrates contemporary Victorian attitudes to women vividly... and reminds us of how restricted daily life was for a Victorian lady at home and how squalid and hopeless for the poor... A conscientious and broad-ranging survey

    Alannah Hopkins, Irish Times
  • Handsomely illustrated... entertaining... Highly recommended
