Book Review of Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire

This is an excellent book! I am fully versed on British and French history of the time, and this book was accurate, objective and very enjoyable to read. Ms. Foreman does a good job of integrating the politics of the times (in which Georgiana was very much involved) with the private life of Georgiana and her contemporaries. After reading much about Marie Antoinette and Josephine Bonaparte, and seeing Georgiana's name mentioned several times, I was eager to read her own story.
