"A compelling account of couples in the public limelight whose marriages are tainted by disgrace, injustice and dishonor," writes reviewer Kimberly Luyckx. The stories span 1920 to the present day as well as both sides of the Atlantic. The author compares the women to the medieval queen, Elizabeth Woodville, known as the White Queen. Grandmother to King Henry VIII, her loyalty to the Tudor dynasty surmounted her desire for a faithful marriage. Today’s political marriages are not so different.
