Description
"Ever since Edward VIII gave up his throne in 1936 to marry her, the extraordinary career of Wallis, Duchess of Windsor, has never ceased to fascinate. How was it that the most eligible bachelor in the world fell in love with this unknown American woman, who was not generally considered beautiful? What was the nature of their relationship? Was she responsible for the Abdication?" "Many questions remain unanswered. Why did her birth go unrecorded? What were the qualities which so infatuated the Prince of Wales? Why did she never have children? Michael Bloch, who spent ten years as Maitre Blum's assistant is the ideal person to provide this biographical reassessment. In it he dispels much of the mystery that has surrounded her, and paints a vivid portrait of a courageous, glamorous and unusual individual - perhaps in some ways not a woman at all."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
