|Summary:||"One of Britain's most distinguished biographers turns her focus on one of the most vilified women of the last century. Historian Anne Sebba has written the first full biography by a woman of Wallis Simpson, Duches of Windsor, which sheds light on the fascinating and enigmatic American divorcee who nearly became Queen of England."--Provided by publisher.|
