The Duchess


I have received the best ever book for Christmas from my fiance- The Duchess by Amanda Foreman. I just love it - I am a fan of historical novels in any case. This one is so very well written, I have put it down for a quick minute while I write my blog, but I must get back to it immediately afterwards! I have not seen the film, andI hope its very faithful to the true character of Georgiana, and to the events of her life. Well - off for a little read.......

Thank you for following my blog!It's highly appreciated. :)) And, I also got Amanda Foreman's book for Christmas and I love it too! Just as you said, it's really well written..
And the portrait you posted is one of my favourites! Too bad it's not included in the book.

I'll have to look out for this as I like historical novels (must admit that Arthurian/Mediaeval/Tudor are my preferred periods though).

I have seen the movie, The Duchess. Great storyline, sad but touching
