Recent Research books for Scandalous Women
I love this cover even more than the one on the American edition. Can't wait to plunge in and read this one. So much is known about George IV and his siblings, so it'll be interesting to see what juicy stuff Stella Tillyard has dug up on George III's siblings. She's also the author of Aristrocrats, the story of the fabolous Lennox sisters.
Ah, those Spencer women! It's clear that the late Princess of Wales was not the only Spencer woman to set the tongues awagging. Lady Harriet Spencer who married the Earl of Bessborough led a very interesting life, besides being the mother of Lady Caroline Lamb. Her sister, Georgiana, The Duchess of Devonshire is more well-known particularly since the publication of Amanda Foreman's biography several years ago (now being made into a movie with Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes), now it's Harriet's turn in the spotlight.
