Summary

Sunday Times best-selling author Andrew Morton reveals new information and sources that totally transform our perception of Wallis Simpson.

Wallis in Love brings a fascinating new perspective on the 20th century's most controversial royal scandal. Andrew Morton's impeccable research and unerring skill for riveting storytelling combine to present a strong case for a new and startling reveal: that the woman who rocked the world with her uncompromising passion for the Prince of Wales may have fooled everyone by keeping the object of her true passion hidden away....

From her relatively lowly beginnings in America - where young Wallis and her mother were dependent on her domineering and powerful uncle Sol, to her rise through the social ranks and her determination to one day beat men at their own game - to the ultimate conquest of the Prince of Wales. Morton paints a vivid and multifaceted picture of a compelling, ambitious and often hard-hearted woman who may have won the jewel in the British crown but very possibly at the expense of her true happiness.

Wallis in Love reveals the men Wallis truly loved, the men who broke her heart - and the hearts she broke in turn. In this vivid, fresh and frankly amazing portrait of the Duchess of Windsor, Morton draws on interviews, secret letters, diaries and never before seen or heard primary sources.

From the day she was born in a ramshackle cottage in the hills to revealing what really happened the night her husband died, Morton paints a fresh and enticing portrait of the Duchess of Windsor.

NOTHING NEW

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would like the Narrator to use an American accent when reading dialogue spoken by Americans. the speech patterns are all wrong!

Would you recommend Wallis in Love to your friends? Why or why not?

Only to people who know very little about Wallis Windsor. So much of this is well covered in other books I've read.

What three words best describe Cameron Stewart’s voice?

Pleasant, clear, English

Do you think Wallis in Love needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. there is nothing to be added

Any additional comments?

This sadly is really nothing new. It is highly unlikely, given other authors' evidence that Wallis was in love with Herman Rogers. In fact, Anne Sebba has proof that she regretted leaving Ernest, her husband, to whom she wrote after her split form him

A waste of lives

Nothing we didn't already know but sometimes a fresh eye is refreshing on an old story.
