about

A sweeping, epic saga steeped in passions, drama and intrigue - at the heart of the royal circle. Edward VIII became notorious for abandoning the throne for Mrs Simpson, but in the summer of 1911 he was a prince straight from the pages of a fairy-tale. Raised by the harsh disciplinarian King George V and his unfeeling Queen Mary, the prince longed for the warmth that had been deprived of him. The high society Houghton girls' lives however, were full of fun, both at their magnificent family seat Snowberry, and at the whirlwind of glamorous parties which punctuated their lives. When a moment of serendipity brings Edward and Lily Houghton together, the pressures of a stuffy court are replaced with the lightness that Edward has dreamt of. But a future monarch could not choose his own Queen, and even an enduring love might falter under the furious gaze of a King. Could the devotion of Edward and Lily triumph against him and the impending doom of World War I? Or would they bow to the inevitable and set in train events that could bring down the Crown, and change the course of history forever?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fluffy but well done A nice fluffy historical romance set in the early 20th century. Likeable but under developed and highly unlikely characters but a nice easy read. I can't say I agreed with Lily's choice in the end but as far as the story goes, I understand it. Fans of the recent royal wedding will enjoy this as it deals with a royal wanting to marry a commoner back when it wasn't even a consideration. I especially enjoyed the bits of history that adds texture to the story, like the birth of Hollywood and the Titanic disaster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light reading! I devoured this book over the Christmas holiday, drawn in by the warm characters, the luxurious setting and the ties to today's headlines of Prince William and Kate Middleton. I really enjoy books set in the early-mid 20th century in England, and this satisfied my itch for period fiction. It's light, not too serious, but thoroughly enjoyable.
