Summary
"One of Britain's most distinguished biographers turns her focus on one of the most vilified women of the last century. Historian Anne Sebba has written the first full biography by a woman of Wallis Simpson, Duches of Windsor, which sheds light on the fascinating and enigmatic American divorcee who nearly became Queen of England."--Provided by publisher
Summary
A portrait of the divorcee maligned for her marriage to the abdicated Edward VIII discusses the impoverished early life that fueled her ambigions, theories about her alleged personality disorder, and her posthumous status as a female empowerment icon
