    1 thought on “The Woman He Loved”

    1. I lugged this little paperback around for at least five years before finally reading it. I was so curious about the scandalous story of the king who abdicated for a "commoner", oooooh! I hope it was accurate, as this book is now my entire knowledge of the affair. I liked the glimpse of the two of them that happens in The King's Speech movie. That characterization seems consistent with the book.

    2. Incredibly detailed biography of Wallis Simpson's life and her relationship with the Duke of Windsor. I didn't know half of the information presented here, especially everything that occurred after the abdication. What a fascinating look at this couple!

    3. What a beautiful yet tragic love story. I have always wanted to learn more about the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. So glad I found this book.Very well written as it transport the reader through the separate then married life of Wallis and David Windsor. The author's research is remarkable and I enjoyed this book very, very much.

    4. Well-researched and well-written. This is a very detailed look at the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. It is an interesting story that I had not read about before and it seems like this book fills a gap in historical text about the royal family. As it was biographical it wasn't always the most exciting but it did always come across as authentic and gave an inside look into the man who gave up his throne for a woman and the woman he loved.

    5. I didn't realize when I picked this book up that this whole story was being played out at the time my grandmother arrived from Hungary. She learned English by reading the newspaper - and I'm sure she must have read every article about the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. It was quite the scandal. I enjoyed reading about what life was like at that particular time. I probably enjoyed it more than the average reader would.

    6. I bought this book for 25cents at a thrift shop. I suspended reading a Ruth Rendell to read this. It is very well written. It held my interest throughout I felt it a balanced analysis of all the major characters in this drama. The title implies that it's about Wallis Simpson. It's just as much about the Duke of Windsor. I'm impressed with the way the author organized a wealth of material. Sometimes biographies are too detailed. This one is not. It's just right.

    7. I found this book for $1.00 dollar used in a Small Washington town on a camping trip. I was like 15 and read it in about 6 days. Great love story

    8. I've read quite a few books that address the abdication of Edward VIII in 1936, but none from the perspective of Edward or Wallis Simpson. The other books were focused on Queen Mary, George VI, Elizabeth II, or another member of the Royal Family. Martin's book provides a thorough biography of Wallis as well as Edward. While I had a basic understanding of Wallis, this book filled in a lot of details about her childhood, first and second marriages, and ultimately her life as Duchess of Windsor. Co [...]

    9. Definately the "story" of the century but probably not the "love story" of the century. Glosses over the truth a bit.
