Wallis Simpson’s name has come up quite a bit lately. Of course, the recently deceased Elizabeth II would never have been Queen were it not for Wallis. There are also those who have compared Wallis with Megan Markle. Both found a man unhappy with royal life and moved him away from what had always seemed to be his destiny.
For those who would like to know more about Wallis, this title offers a good read. Morton has the ability to write biographies that read almost like novels. The pages definitely turned for me. However, readers should note that they may well leave this book not liking its subject.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.
