...so, a friend of mine handed the book to someone who is head of the TV division of a major studio here in LA.  Though this is a billion to one chance, I got to thinking... how would I cast this??

I did come up with two actors for Louis and Victoria...

What do you guys think of Jeremy Northam as Louis Battenberg and Cate Blanchett as VMH?  Who would you cast???

 dou mean that they could make a Movie about  the book or what ? that would be great!!!

and i think the Jeremy Northam and Cate Blanchett are great! they look like Louis and Victoria.
i hope so that he could make a movie about them. ^^

I highly doubt they will, I just thought it would be fun for us to cast it....

I suppose, however, stranger things have been filmed.

Not only are we going to be blessed with Ilana's non-fiction book on VMH (yay!) but there's a fictional work on VMH as well. It's  called The Royal Mob, and should also be out this summer through Publish America. It's by name Theresa Sherman (a pen name of a non-fiction author). Between these 2 books, Robert Alexander's book on Ella and Janet Ashton's book it's shaping up to be a very Hessian year!

whats the name of this non-fiction book?

My biography of the four sisters with emphasis on VMH and Irene is called The Four GracesL Queen Victoria's Hessian Granddaughters.  It will be published by Kensington House publishers.  I am not sure when it is coming out.  I hope you will enjoy it when it does.
So long and thanks for all the fish

I'm sorry Russka Princess, but it won't be.  It's an online publisher who would sell the rights to a German publisher, but would not translate it themselves.  Perhaps when your English is better you'll be able to read it in English! I hope you'll get the opportunity.

So I read just the "the royal mob" and it is miraculous! especially wittily I find that it puts where Ella, victoria and Louis on boot are and sing "row row row a bout", I find this very witty. And if Victoria with her sisters is together, one sees as near and funny them were. The love scene with Louis is also quite sweet! fully romantically, particularly start where, nevertheless, they hurt ma ankle has and he maintains them. I know this book is only devised, nobody knows whether Victoria and Louis really so affectionately to each other were. But I find it is great. Louis seems in diesesn book so charmingly, wittily and affectionately. Book simply wonderfully this!!

Thank you so much Russka Princess... I'm glad you had the opportunity to read it, esp. since it was in English.  I guess your English is better than you thought!  Good for you.  Would you be kind enough to write a review on Amazon (if that's where you got the book)?  I would so appreciate it!

of course !! i make itl.

I did cry in the scene where Louis died.. poor victoria.. she did loose her first love.. but i love the romantic scene between louis and victoria. its seems they were really happy cause they laughed often toegther.

but i would be interestet when the book " the four Graces" coming out ?

the letters in the book " the Royal Mob" are great, LouisĀ“s letter to his Parents is so romantic.

That letter is in LOUIS & VICTORIA, which is why I could use it in the novel.

The Four Graces will be out this year....I hope you'll enjoy it and thanks for posting the review!!
