'spirited and stylish, but without money or connections, Wallis gets the brush-off from high society. 'she's so lonely she almost goes home. But once she meets Edward, the glamorous Prince of Wales, her star begins to rise.

As royal friendship becomes love, Wallis' humdrum life becomes a glittering whirl. Yachts, jewels, planes. Parties at the Prince's private castle. 'she never for one moment expects it to last.
