The Golden Prince

 
9780007390205: The Golden Prince

‘If you like Philippa Gregory you’ll love this!’ Nora Roberts

Edward VIII became notorious for abandoning the throne for Mrs Simpson, but in the summer of 1911 he was a prince straight from the pages of a fairy-tale. Raised by the harsh disciplinarian King George V and his unfeeling Queen Mary, the prince longed for the warmth that had been deprived of him.

The high society Houghton girls' lives however, were full of fun, both at their magnificent family seat Snowberry, and at the whirlwind of glamorous parties which punctuated their lives. When a moment of serendipity brings Edward and Lily Houghton together, the pressures of a stuffy court are replaced with the lightness that Edward has dreamt of.

But a future monarch could not choose his own Queen, and even an enduring love might falter under the furious gaze of a King. Could the devotion of Edward and Lily triumph against him and the impending doom of World War I? Or would they bow to the inevitable and set in train events that could bring down the Crown, and change the course of history forever?

Review:

Praise for Enemies of the Heart:

• ‘An impressive, epic debut’ Daily Mirror

• ‘An immensely satisfying, sweeping saga …it is one of those engrossing tales that never seems to let up on incident as we belt through four decades full of fascinating detail, skilfully written. A book to curl up with and lose yourself in’ Sarah Broadhurst

• Fans of Barbara Taylor Bradford will devour this epic as I did’ The Sun

• ’Dean beautifully captures the mood and color of the era–her descriptive passages are marvelous and complement the layered intrigue, romance and deception.’ Publishers Weekly

•’If you like Philippa Gregory, you will love this book!’ Nora Roberts
