Crown associate editor Rachel Kahan, who acquired the books, adds, 'We have gotten a lot of good feedback about the books from our reps. We're going to publish two a season, and we'll redesign the covers to give them a really elegant look.

There's a quality about 'The Devil on Horseback' that seems to put the reader back in another time. That is, reading this novel is a lot like reading something that was written 30 or 40 years ago.
It's a Gothic novel and it has a rather interesting storyline. But it just seems to be from another era, sort of out of step with today's style.

In , Alice was admitted to a sanatorium as she began to show signs of very serious mental health issues. Eventually, she was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Her youngest child, a certain prince called Philip, was just nine at the time and he went to live with his grandmother who took on his care and education.
Prince Philip described his grandmother as practical but all her resources were called on in when another unspeakable tragedy hit the family. The huge gap left in the family by the deaths of so many loved ones was a burden for all of them and another deep tragedy for Victoria. Having helped her own daughter bury a child, Victoria had to face the same agony herself. Just months after the death of Cecilie and her children, Victoria lost her eldest son.
Despite a life weighted with tragedy, sadness and difficulties, Victoria never lost her spirit of adventure or her determination or her cool, calm and collected attitude to life. Throughout her life she remained passionate about reading, discovering and learning. And her rational and determined manner has perhaps shaped the Royal Family of today more than we give her credit for.
