I started reading this knowing nothing about Wallis Simpson except that a king abdicated so he could marry her, and that most people seemed to blame her for it. My instinct is to always call BS when a woman is held responsible for a grown man's actions, so when I came across this book and saw that that the author wanted to humanize Simpson, I was intrigued.

The information presented in this biography was really interesting, but I thought the writing quite dry.
