October 10, 2020 11:00 am

In this intimate retelling of the love story of Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII, Anna Pasternak tells how twisted gossip and public distrust has always haunted women who dare to fall for an English royal. From Edward and Wallis’s first meeting, through their whirlwind courtship to the drama of the abdication and their final listless years in exile, Pasternak uncovers the life and legacy of one the most misjudged characters in British royal history.
