My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is biography of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire who was the great-great-great-great-aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Amanda Foreman’s research work brings to life of this famous historical and aristocratic character.
By marrying William Cavendish in 1774, she became a famous figure due to her political and fashion ambitions.
The book has plenty of Georgiana’s correspondence, pictures and newspapers of that time giving engraving details of her life.
I haven’t seen the movie The Duchess (2008) which was made based on this book with Keira Knightley, Ralph Fiennes, Dominic Cooper. In any case, I doubt if this movie will reflect part of this magnificent book.
