Born in Baltimore, Maryland, at the end of the nineteenth century, Bessie Wallis Warfield would grow up to be Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor, the woman who inspired a king to abdicate his throne for her love. Her life was anything but boring: a well-to-do childhood among Baltimore's social elite followed by several marriages and love affairs that would take her around the world, from California to China and everywhere in between. Scandal and intrigue followed her no matter where she went, and her love affair with the Prince of Wales, soon to be King Edward VIII, caused an abdication crisis that shook the United Kingdom to its core. But even after their marriage, Wallis continued to be a force to be reckoned with. This well-researched and entrancing biography presents the fascinating life story of a complicated, headstrong woman and the people she influenced. (SM)
