about

Soon to be a major BBC drama starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers (The Tudors) and Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones).
     It was the divorce that scandalised Georgian England... She was a spirited young heiress. He was a handsome baronet with a promising career in government. Their marriage had the makings of a fairy tale but ended as one of the most salacious and highly publicised divorces in history.
     For over two hundred years the story of Lady Worsley, her vengeful husband, and her lover, George Maurice Bisset, lay forgotten. Now Hallie Rubenhold, in her impeccably researched book, throws open a window to a rarely seen view of Georgian England, one coloured by passion, adventure and the defiance of social convention. The Worsley's story, their struggles and outrageous lifestyle, promises to shock even the modern reader.

     First published with the title Lady Worsley's Whim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mishap in the book description I plan to read this book soon. That's a definite. I just wanted to point out that theBBC drama, The Scandalous Lady W, does not star Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. It stars Natalie Dormer, Aneurin Bernard, and Shaun Evans. :-) Such a good movie! My star rating is for the movie.
