These are the letters of perhaps one of the most famous couples of the twentieth century: the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The letters in the first half of the book are mainly from Wallis to her Aunt Bessie. It's very interesting to watch the progression of events, from Wallis's first meeting with her future husband to the urgency of the Abdication. It's fascinating stuff and well worth anyone's time and effort to read it. ( )

I rate it 4 for historical interest, though the quality of the letters is often puerile. Like many other non-experts, I tended to be sympathetic to
Wallis and Edward as a romantic couple, but reading their letters I learned what a ghastly pair they really were, especially in their Nazi links. ( )
