The author which is an attorney does a great job of investigating this controversy. She begins arguing the case as if the controversy is on trial. The information she found is fascinating. She points out various points where she discovered them where as other authors tend to speculate or offer their opinions. This one is definitely worth reading!

I did like this book, the beginning was a little slow, but as I read on it started to get more interesting. This was a interesting read because I have always been curious about this subject and the book gave several differents points of view on how their relationship could have very well been real. I really enjoyed it!
