This was one of my most highly anticipated July reads and I must say it didn t disappoint Bryn Turnbull transports readers back to the story of Thelma Morgan Furness an American socialite that captures the eye of Edward Prince of Wales As well we are taken to the events surrounding the custody battle between Thelma s sister Gloria Vanderbilt and their mother I knew nothing about Thelma Morgan but after reading this book I must declare that she is one of those interesting historical persons that I won t soon forget It was so intriguing to see through her fictionalized story what Edward Prince of Wales was like More to the point that even if it shocked the world and members of his family perhaps it wasn t that shocking that a man looking for modernism would abdicate from the throneHighly recommended if you are a fan of the antics of the House of WindsorExpected Publication 210720Goodreads review 130720

For fans of The Paris Wife and The Crown this stunning novel tells the true story of the American divorcée who captured Prince Edward’s heart before he abdicated his throne for Wallis SimpsonIn the summer of when Thelma Morgan marries Viscount Duke Furness after a whirlwind romance she’s immersed in The Woman eBook #237 a gilded world of extraordinary wealth and privilege For Thelma th. I knew a little bit about the Vanderbilt family prior to reading this historical fiction novel but really didn t know much about Thelma Furness Gloria Morgan Vanderbilt s twin sister This book provided a look at Thelma s romantic life as well as the famous custody trial involving Thelma s niece in which Gloria battled the Vanderbilt family in court Lots of scandal which made for a juicy readSo Thelma was the woman before Wallis hence the title Despite being married Thelma had an affair with Edward Prince of Wales Edward of course would go on to become King of England but later abdicated the throne so he could marry Wallis Simpson Obviously this was a huge deal back when it happened nearly a century ago The author chose to tell Thelma s story with alternating timelines as it flips back and forth between her romantic life and later on during the custody case in New York The vast majority of the story takes place in the 1920s and 1930sHistorical fiction novels can vary in how much is based on fact and what is just the product of the author s imagination While the author does admit to changing a few of the dates in the book it was nothing that hindered the overall story For me this book captured the essence of what historical fiction is all about in that it felt realistic and the author incorporated as many published facts about the people and events as much as possible So much has already been written about Edward and Wallis so it was nice to see the focus on somebody else who he was involved with prior to his marriage The custody trial as well as her relationship with Edward were important parts of Thelma s life and it was interesting to see how they intersected I will say my initial opinion of Thelma changed by the time I finished the book but one thing is for certain it was fascinating getting a glimpse inside of her life I think this book will appeal to a wide variety of readers If you love reading about the royal family you will want to pick this one up If you enjoy reading about wealthy people with incredibly messy lives this is a good read for that as well And for what it is worth I found this book to be a pleasant distraction from all of the chaos going on in the world at this moment When you can find a book that allows you to escape for awhile and you aren t concentrating on your real life problems that s always a good thingI received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
