“Gloria wrote part of it and I wrote part,” explained Lady Furness, “AL our lives people have been saying ‘you ought to write a book’—and now we’ve done it!” The twin biography is a candid and sometimes barbed recital of ‘heir tempestuous lives, which included royal romances and sensational tragedies.
Thelma discusses with objective candor her many romances, including her love for the Prince of Wales, for whom she oroke up her marriage with Lord Furness, a * though they were never divorced. Her account of her many viers with the Prince at Fort Belvedere, yachting trips and African safaris rn his company, disclose many heretofore unpublished anecdotes including his first meeting with Wallis Simpson, the woman for whom he gave up his throne.
