    Interesting book----not really new information but I hadn't read much about her so a lot was new to me. He has done a lot of research and one thing I did like was when he quoted people or her friends, he put them in context (were they love rivals, did they have anything to gain/lose by...

    Simply put, this book portrays Wallis Simpson in what seems to be her true light. One of those women who?ll do almost anything to attain what she wants; money, power, & status. She accomplishes this by infiltrating herself with people of considerable wealth, most from either rich...

    Andrew Morton is a biographer known for his sensationalism and sometimes tawdry details about celebrities. He is also known for extensive digging into a person's past - every interview, letter, comment, etc. Both of these facts about Morton make him a fun biographer to read; who doesn'...

    Andrew Morton is incapable of writing a biography - he writes books in which he either loves or intensely dislikes his subjects. In this book, he chooses to intensely dislike the Duchess of Windsor. He's not alone in his views and by all neutral accounts, she was rather unlikable. Howe...

    Should the Monarchy or the people of England ever decide to exhume the Duchess of Windsor from Royal burial grounds and move her out of country, this and a growing list of new research and books will support such action. In the last century this was considered an all time great love st...

    Andrew Morton did a superb job with the latest "tell all" regarding the life of The Duchess of Windsor. Just when you think there is nothing more to learn about this woman! A revealing glimpse into the life of a truly self-absorbed, greedy, vicious gold digger who truly did not have a ...

    What a great followup to " 17 Carnations" the story of the efforts to cover up the potentially treasonous connections between the Duke and Duchess and Adolf Hitler and his closest confidants. Although it was called one of the Great romances of the twentieth century, it certainly was n...

    I was first introduced to Wallis Simpson in the movie W.E. and was intrigued about the wonderful, fairy-tale love story of the American and the former king. But wow, what a fanciful tale that was. Yes, I do think the author of this book maybe disliked Wallis to begin with and was a bit...

    While looking for a "rest of the story" biography, I found something rather different in this book. It dragged slowly to the meeting and relationship of the eventual Duke and Duchess, bogged down innumerous names and details. By no means a scholarly work, it reads more like the work of...

    Such an interesting, if not unpopular subject! I have read a great many books about the royal family beginning before Henry VIII on down and also about Wallis, the abdication and all that was written prior! This book almost made me feel sorry for Edward VIII, almost! Was Wallis an ench...

    Wallis in Love This is a fascinating account of the life of the woman from Baltimore who would be queen. The Duchess of Windsor realized after Edward abdicated, which she apparently did not want, she would have to spend the rest of her life with a man, not a king, that she eventuall...

    I?ve read quite a bit about Wallis Simpson , the Duchess of Windsor. No one really has anything nice to say about her. She was something of a miserable person, as was her husband David, the Duke of Windsor. The one thing that has come through in everything I?ve read is that Wallis ...

    I have read many books about the Windsors and the royal family- and even have the auction catalog from the historic auction of the Duchess?s belongings. I did not learn a lot of new information but I did enjoy Morton?s writing and research. I read the Kindle edition and would have ...

    Wallis Simpson was labeled one of the most hated women. To the people of Britain, she was seen as a temptress whom had made one of their beloved members of the royal family abdicate from the throne. Others may look back at her with relief and gratitude for luring away a king whom could...

    I was first introduced to Wallis Simpson in the movie W.E. and was intrigued about the wonderful, fairy-tale love story of the American and the former king. But wow, what a fanciful tale that was. Yes, I do think the author of this book maybe disliked Wallis to begin with and was a bit...

    While looking for a "rest of the story" biography, I found something rather different in this book. It dragged slowly to the meeting and relationship of the eventual Duke and Duchess, bogged down innumerous names and details. By no means a scholarly work, it reads more like the work of...

    Such an interesting, if not unpopular subject! I have read a great many books about the royal family beginning before Henry VIII on down and also about Wallis, the abdication and all that was written prior! This book almost made me feel sorry for Edward VIII, almost! Was Wallis an ench...

    Wallis in Love This is a fascinating account of the life of the woman from Baltimore who would be queen. The Duchess of Windsor realized after Edward abdicated, which she apparently did not want, she would have to spend the rest of her life with a man, not a king, that she eventuall...

    I?ve read quite a bit about Wallis Simpson , the Duchess of Windsor. No one really has anything nice to say about her. She was something of a miserable person, as was her husband David, the Duke of Windsor. The one thing that has come through in everything I?ve read is that Wallis ...

    I have read many books about the Windsors and the royal family- and even have the auction catalog from the historic auction of the Duchess?s belongings. I did not learn a lot of new information but I did enjoy Morton?s writing and research. I read the Kindle edition and would have ...

    Wallis Simpson was labeled one of the most hated women. To the people of Britain, she was seen as a temptress whom had made one of their beloved members of the royal family abdicate from the throne. Others may look back at her with relief and gratitude for luring away a king whom could...

    I'm rating this with three stars in recognition of the effort in research and documentation of the times. I only enjoyed the historical aspects of the book and found Wallis to be one of the most dislikeable women that I have read about. Another reviewer pointed out that the title was m...

    On June of 1896, Bessie Wallis Warfield was born. In November of that same year, her tubercular father died. Her mother was two months pregnant when they married, which gave her a bad start in the social life in the south. Her mother?s father and step-mother did not offer to take the...

    There is nothing in this book that has been "untold", since people have been writing about the Duchess of Windsor for decades. She was (and remains) a woman with a lot of enemies. Wallis was also someone who accomplished nothing at all, or at least nothing that has lasted. You don't ge...

    Such an interesting, if not unpopular subject! I have read a great many books about the royal family beginning before Henry VIII on down and also about Wallis, the abdication and all that was written prior! This book almost made me feel sorry for Edward VIII, almost! Was Wallis an ench...

    Wallis in Love This is a fascinating account of the life of the woman from Baltimore who would be queen. The Duchess of Windsor realized after Edward abdicated, which she apparently did not want, she would have to spend the rest of her life with a man, not a king, that she eventuall...

    This advance reader copy was provided by Grand Central Publishing via NetGalley. Years ago when I still thought that Wallis Simpson and David Windsor were a match made in heaven and soulmates, it was such a romantic vision. It was very disheartening over time to learn that although ...

    On June of 1896, Bessie Wallis Warfield was born. In November of that same year, her tubercular father died. Her mother was two months pregnant when they married, which gave her a bad start in the social life in the south. Her mother?s father and step-mother did not offer to take the...

    Thanks to goodreads and the publisher for a free copy of Wallis in Love. This is a well-written, informative biography of someone who I find next-to-impossible to like. Kudos to the author for making this such an interesting read. Would definitely recommend to people who enjoy non-fict...

    There is nothing in this book that has been "untold", since people have been writing about the Duchess of Windsor for decades. She was (and remains) a woman with a lot of enemies. Wallis was also someone who accomplished nothing at all, or at least nothing that has lasted. You don't ge...

    Author Andrew Morton faced a herculean task - researching and crafting a biography of a wholly unlikable public figure who often sparks vitriol in the hearts and minds of people, even today. After slogging through this book, it's clear that Morton did little more than his due diligence...

    "Wallis in Love" explores the life of Wallis Simpson, the woman who changed the course of the British Monarchy. Twice divorced, she charmed Edward VIII who ended up abdicating the throne. It was supposed to be a great love story but in many ways, it seemed only to imprison Wallis and E...

    A fascinating book!! Bessie Wallis Warfield is a prudish, rather obsessive girl from Baltimore. As a child she was imaginative, ambitious and extremely spoiled. Most of her life was a search for status and social acceptance. Her father died when she was young, and she frequently clashe...

    I was under the mistaken impression that Wallis Simpson was a misunderstood woman who fell in love with the King of England. My eyes have been opened to the truth. Wallis was a young girl who felt she deserved the best of everything. Men were her stepping stones to get what she want...

    Before there was reality TV, and social media influencers, and before there was television, let alone the NetFlix drama The Crown, there was Wallis Simpson. How did a down on her luck Baltimore gal create the love affair of the century? She became famous for being famous through sheer ...

    Interesting book----not really new information but I hadn't read much about her so a lot was new to me. He has done a lot of research and one thing I did like was when he quoted people or her friends, he put them in context (were they love rivals, did they have anything to gain/lose by...

    ...

    Wallis finally gets the royal treatment, though it?s a bit late to please her. ...

    More fascinating than anticipated. ...

    Worst. Simpson. Ever. ...

    Simply put, this book portrays Wallis Simpson in what seems to be her true light. One of those women who?ll do almost anything to attain what she wants; money, power, & status. She accomplishes this by infiltrating herself with people of considerable wealth, most from either rich...

    Gossipy Book About the Gossip Girl A teaser for this book proclaimed that Wallis Simpson saved England from King Edward VIII by precipitating his abdication. That?s a misleading teaser ? this is not a book which analyzes the effects upon history its characters had. I love histor...

    Andrew Morton is a biographer known for his sensationalism and sometimes tawdry details about celebrities. He is also known for extensive digging into a person's past - every interview, letter, comment, etc. Both of these facts about Morton make him a fun biographer to read; who doesn'...

    Andrew Morton is incapable of writing a biography - he writes books in which he either loves or intensely dislikes his subjects. In this book, he chooses to intensely dislike the Duchess of Windsor. He's not alone in his views and by all neutral accounts, she was rather unlikable. Howe...

    Should the Monarchy or the people of England ever decide to exhume the Duchess of Windsor from Royal burial grounds and move her out of country, this and a growing list of new research and books will support such action. In the last century this was considered an all time great love st...

    Andrew Morton did a superb job with the latest "tell all" regarding the life of The Duchess of Windsor. Just when you think there is nothing more to learn about this woman! A revealing glimpse into the life of a truly self-absorbed, greedy, vicious gold digger who truly did not have a ...

    What a great followup to " 17 Carnations" the story of the efforts to cover up the potentially treasonous connections between the Duke and Duchess and Adolf Hitler and his closest confidants. Although it was called one of the Great romances of the twentieth century, it certainly was n...

    I?ve read quite a bit about Wallis Simpson , the Duchess of Windsor. No one really has anything nice to say about her. She was something of a miserable person, as was her husband David, the Duke of Windsor. The one thing that has come through in everything I?ve read is that Wallis ...

    I have read many books about the Windsors and the royal family- and even have the auction catalog from the historic auction of the Duchess?s belongings. I did not learn a lot of new information but I did enjoy Morton?s writing and research. I read the Kindle edition and would have ...

    Wallis Simpson was labeled one of the most hated women. To the people of Britain, she was seen as a temptress whom had made one of their beloved members of the royal family abdicate from the throne. Others may look back at her with relief and gratitude for luring away a king whom could...

    I'm rating this with three stars in recognition of the effort in research and documentation of the times. I only enjoyed the historical aspects of the book and found Wallis to be one of the most dislikeable women that I have read about. Another reviewer pointed out that the title was m...

    Andrew Morton's made a good living off the Royals. Wallis Simpson, while never accepted by the Royal Family, has been the subject of many books. This one adds some additional information to the story. However, Wallis still emerges as a manipulative, sometimes cruel, woman. The man who ...
