The King and Mrs.Simpson
In December of 1936, King Edward VIII of Great Britain shocked the world by giving up his kingdom in order to marry a twice-divorced American commoner named Wallis Simpson. The King and Mrs. Simpson recounts the extraordinary love story between the popular King and the enigmatic woman that began at a party in England and culminated with the downfall of his reign nearly six years later.

The story has been told before, but The King and Mrs. Simpson differs from the other books written about the couple who would eventually be known as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The King and Mrs. Simpson is a narrative history that utilizes flashbacks, short passages and dialogue from their memoirs. The King and Mrs. Simpson reads like a story and is sized like a novella, but still captures the historical detail that makes their story one of legend.
