Summary
Before she was the woman who enticed a king from his throne, Bessie Wallis Warfield was a prudish girl from Baltimore. Morton shows how she transformed from a hard-nosed gold-digger to charming chatelaine, taking us through Wallis's romantic adventures in Washington, China, and London
Summary
A portrait of the woman for whom Edward VIII infamously abdicated the British throne draws on journal entries, letters, and other previously unseen records to analyze her complex personality against the backdrop of Jazz Age London
