5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I now have a totally different view of Wallis Simpson that I had before I read this book. She is usually portrayed as a miserable person but this book shows her in a totally different light - someone who is the life and soul of the party. Very interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mitford, 13 May 2014

This review is from: The Duchess of Windsor: A Memoir (Kindle Edition)
I have read several biographies of the Duchess of Windsor, but most seem to stick to the view of the era that she was some sort of monster who stole the king.This book however is written by someone who knew her personally and views the Duchess in a much kinder light.

It is interesting to read a view from an angle quite different. The author had quite a background herself. At least she was not bias.

5.0 out of 5 stars Abdication from a different view point, 11 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Duchess of Windsor: A Memoir (Kindle Edition)
Refreshing in its honesty concerning a turning point in history, this book offers a different spin on the abdication, focusing on a genuine love story which stood the test of time and shows Wallis as a warm human being rather than the ogre she has been portrayed to be.
Most surprisingly, was the reluctance of the British establishment to let this devoted couple play a role in the monarchy for the fear they may succeed and become more popular thus proving the government wrong in their initial assessment of this relationship

A very well written book, so good I couldn't put it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read, 31 Dec 2013

This review is from: The Duchess of Windsor: A Memoir (Kindle Edition)
I read through in a couple of sessions. I found it interesting but a little sketchy, though to be fair it's not a long book. It has whetted my appetite, however, to read more on the subject.
