Duchess Georgiana was the most prominent British woman of her day(1757-1806.) She was beautiful, sensitive and extravagant. This is her story of drugs, drink, high-profile love affairs, gambling and also her battle with an eating disorder! (She is the great-great-great-great aunt to the late Princess Diana.) Georgiana's story is sensational! Anyone who loves historical biographies will love this soap-opera like novel. The political and fashion commentaries are also very entertaining.
