"What a cracking subject: there's no other way to put it." London Matron.
The gripping story of Lola Montez, the notorious Victorian adventuress who rose to become for decades the most famous woman in the world after Queen Victoria.
The story of how she did it ranges from the exotic lands of India to the roughandready Australian Outback, taking in the glittering courts of Europe, the razzmatazz of New York’s Broadway and the California goldfields on the way.
This true story of a remarkable woman will fascinate all those who love to discover history’s less travelled roads.
"Throughout Becoming Lola I had to remind myself that the story was based on historical fact. It is a fascinating journey following a woman’s singleminded determination to get the very best for herself at all costs." Historical Novel Society
"A fascinating read. Lola was such a gutsy character, and Harriet Steel has captured her times and adventures very vividly. It's a must read if you like wild women and strange adventures." Beth Webb, Author of the Star Dancer trilogy
