In 1912 England, seventeen-year-old Prince Edward falls in love with the beautiful Lily Houghton who is not of royal blood, and as the two young lovers prepare to wed, the prince's royal destiny hangs in the balance.
Rebecca Dean crafts an engaging historical romance based on the life of Edward VIII. While Edward VIII would go down in history for his love affair with Mrs. Wallis Simpson, Dean instead chooses to focus on Edward in his younger years. She creates a charming story of how he longs to escape his oppressive family and run way with a dazzling young society girl.
