This was a very interesting book of letters written by Wallis Simpson to her aunt, but also contains letters written between her and her future husband Edward, Prince of Wales, from their first meeting until several weeks before their wedding.

One also sees what a puppy dog the Duke was. After reading so much about them, I see they were quite well matched: " May 31, Alshia Moyez rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-romance. I've read so much about this couple. This is not really going to be a review because I'm pressed for time right now. That has no effect on my rating this 4 stars, though.
Jan 13, Sherry rated it liked it. Curious, fascinating and tedious all at the same time. This book provided insight into the progression of the romance between Wallis Simpson and Edward, Prince of Wales. Wallis Simpson certainly presented herself as a whining social climber who appeared to have only one destination in mind for herself.
I hope they were happy together. Feb 18, Ruby rated it liked it Shelves: nonfiction , letters , english-history. By turns fascinating and boring, this is certainly a unique perspective on the abdication of Edward VIII. The ending leaves much to be desired, however, as it gives no information on the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
Nov 25, Courtney rated it really liked it. Love story. Edward gave up everything for the woman he loved- back in this time it was unheard of that British royalty would give up the throne to marry a woman an American divorcee none the less because he was in love with her. Jan 18, Ewa rvdzik rated it it was amazing.
I think this book is wonderful for all those who really want to understand what has happened between the future Duke and the Duchess of Windsor. Knowing the story from their point of view is a unique opportunity to understand why Edward has abdicated and what life was like afterwards for them. Jun 13, Leanna rated it liked it. An anthology of actual letters exchanged between Wallis and Edward. Unfortunately some letters are dull or report the same events so the progression of history drags. Fascinating view of life at this turbulent time.
I couldn't get passed the first group of photos. Just lost interest. I was hoping for a more interesting story here. The book was edited and compiled well, I just didn't find Wallis' situation as captivating as I thought it would be. Apr 30, Carissa rated it really liked it. Fascinating read!
Fact can indeed be stranger then fiction. Apr 11, Carol rated it really liked it. This book gave me a taste of what they were about and what life was like for them. Oct 01, Rhonda Bartlett rated it it was amazing.
A fascinating view of these lives from the inside out. If you're not familiar with the story of King Edward's abdication, I suggest you become familiar with this first.
Oct 11, Helen Azar rated it it was amazing. Excellent primary sources. Really gives you a glimpse into their lives, first hand, without anyone's interpretations. For better or worse. View 2 comments. Sep 22, Tammie rated it really liked it. I love reading books in letter form and this one is very good. He really loved her. I had heard their story but not in this much detail. A very good read. Quite a build-up to a less than sub-par ending- what can you expect from royalty?
