Disregarding centuries of royal protocol, Prince Edward fell in love with Wallis Simpson, a divorced American woman. To the shock of the British establishment, the new king announced his intention to marry the commoner from Baltimore. What followed was a downward spiral of scandal, abdication, and exile, with Wallis portrayed as the seductress who upended the monarchy. But here, the author of Lara tells a different story: that Wallis was the victim of the abdication, not the villain. In Anna Pasternak's telling, this intelligent, strong-willed outsider became the perfect scapegoat for those who wished to dethrone the troubled king.
