Summary
Amanda Foreman, a Londoner, freelance journalist, and Oxford graduate, presents the captivating story of Lady Georgiana Spencer, the Duchess of Devonshire. In 1774, Georgiana married wealthy aristocrat and fifth duke of Devonshire, William Cavendish. The marriage spoiled immediately, and Georgiana, noted for her style and political involvement, yet limited as a woman by law, dealt with her adulterous and cold husband through secret substance and gambling addictions as well as illicit romances
