From the Publisher:
In a fictional diary, Maybell Brumby, a wealthy, young American widow, records the efforts of her best friend, Wallis Simpson, to land the world's most eligible bachelor, Edward, the future king of England, in an account of the century's most scandalous courtship and its effects on a monarchy. Reprint. 30,000 first printing.
"The diary entries of shallow and oblivious Baltimore socialite Maybell Brumby comprise [Laurie] Graham's fourth novel, which explores the fictional lives of intimates involved in the 1936 abdication of King Edward VIII....This light romp through sordid territory is sly, gossipy fun." 05/29/2006
