That Inevitable Victorian Thing

E. K. Johnston

Johnston (Ahsoka, 2016) returns with a vivid alternate history set in a near future world where the British Empire has survived into the 21st century. The Church runs a DNA-matching service to ensure that mates are biologically compatible, both for commoners and for royals such as Crown Princess Victoria-Margaret, a descendant of Queen Victoria. Before she inherits the throne, Margaret will have a summer of freedom posing as a commoner in Toronto. Here she forms an unexpected love triangle with newfound friends Helena and August. During a summer of romantic balls and politically charged tea parties, the three share an extraordinary bond and the chance to have what they want and to change the world in the process!
