Wallis Simpson was the woman at the centre of the most scandalous love affair of the 20th century, but in her surprising new biography, bestselling author Anna Pasternak redeems a women wronged by history. With new information shared by those who were close to the couple, she reveals an intelligent woman who was a convenient scapegoat written off by cunning, powerful men and forced into a life she never wanted. Anna Pasternak is the author of Princess in Love and Lara, which revealed the true story of the love affair behind her great uncle Boris Pasternak’s Doctor Zhivago. Her work has appeared in every major British newspaper.
