    Kindle Editionñ Wallis MOBI ç wallis kindle, Wallis Kindle 25 starsYou're telling me I went through all that and at the end Wallis and Edward have only just met Excuse me I thought this was A Novel of Wallis Simpson Duchess of Windsor not The First Novel of How Wallis Simpson Grew Up Married and Divorced and Then Two or Three Books Down the Road Became the Duchess of Windsor Grrr Yes I am disappointed I figured the book would focus a little bit on Wally's childhood devote a bit to her first two marriages but spend the bulk of the book on the courtship and romance between her and Edward Instead I find myself slogging through pages and pages of Wallis's life without really getting to know her as a character beyond the fact she was proud of her lineage and struggled throughout her life with poverty stuff I knew from already from biographies And when I reached the end of the novel I find that Wallis has only just met the prince and thanks to reports by other reviewers that their story will continue in a seuel Talk ab

    Kindle Editionñ Wallis MOBI ç wallis kindle, Wallis KindleSo here's the thing I love well written historical fiction especially relating to British royalty in some way Unfortunately the Shadow ueen didn't uite cut it for me When I pick up historical fiction I'm always hoping that it will give me a sense of what is was like to have really been there at that point in history This book falls a bit short in that regard Details are very sparse except in relation to each character's appearance especially gowns and cocktails Trying to reconstruct the story in the mind's eye is a bit difficult when there is zero sense of atmosphere There's also a lot of unnecessary repetition For example we are often reminded that Wallis thinks such and such

    Kindle Editionñ Wallis MOBI ç wallis kindle, Wallis KindleThis was a light novel The writer took a famous person before she was well known and applied all the usual cliches that you get in a certain sort of woman's novel It was a fun diversion and made me curious about what motivated this person I also enjoyed reading about my hometown San Diego between the two World Wars
