A King's Mistress

Her nickname was the Jersey Lily, her symbol the famous black dress that was the only evening gown her jealous husband would allow her. Along with Queen Alexandra she was acknowledged to be the most beautiful woman in Edwardian England.

Lillie Langry was Edward VII's mistress, painted by Millais, courted by King Leopold of the Belgians, loved by Oscar Wilde, and protected by Queen Alexandra herself when she bore an illegitimate child in secret. This novel, upon which the stunning television series of the same name is based, takes Lillie's story from her girlhood, through the glamour and the triumphs, the scandals and the tragedies, to 1902 and Edward VII's accession to the throne.
