Description

Here Wallis is trying to overcome a traumatizing past and is plucky in her attempt to make the best of a less than desirable situation.

Dealing with financial troubles, an uncooperative cook and a lack of any sort of social life, she finds a way to re-invent herself. Cora – transplanted to the duke's chilly castle at Lulworth, sneered at for her American ways by servants and aristocrats alike, and forced to face up to her new husband's dark secret – becomes much more sympathetic.This book alternates between a few different timelines to give us an in depth look at this complicated and infamous historical figure. Cora's every utterance is followed by an authorial comment restating what her words alone should be enough to convey. I was primed to read something like this book not just because I loved the royal wedding, but I loved the idea of an American marry into British royalty.

I was only briefly familiar with Wallis Simpson and her relationship with King Edward VIII and how it led to his abdication. The subject was Wallis Simpson and of course the Royal family and the love she had the Prince of Wales. Told in alternating time lines, one when she first moves to London and the second after the death of her beloved David.The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal.
