Reviews

"It is the great strength of Tracy Borman's engaging new biography that, like Alison Weir and David Starkey before her, she manages to throw new light on the influence and careers of women in European courts" -- Stella Tillyard Sunday Times "Borman has certainly found an unsung and unusual heroine, what elevates her biography above the others in its genre is the author's sense of humour" Times Literary Supplement "Tracy Borman can tell a good story... [and] her subject is a gift" The Economist "A short and zippy portrait of George II's long-suffering paramour" -- Tim Martin Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year "Tracy Borman handles her voluminous material with easy grace" Independent on Sunday
