Wallis in Love
The Untold Life of the Duchess of Windsor, the Woman Who Changed the MonarchyBook - 2018
Before she was the woman who enticed a king from his throne, Bessie Wallis Warfield was a prudish girl from Baltimore. Morton shows how she transformed from a hard-nosed gold-digger to charming chatelaine, taking us through Wallis's romantic adventures in Washington, China, and London.

Royalty buffs will be eager to read Morton's account of the "Wallis-and-Edward" scandal and it's aftermath. Morton shows Wallis to be the careful fabricator of her own legend and, as such, a rather unreliable source.
