    Anita Leslie quotes at length from the diaries of English poet and writer Wilfrid Scawen Blunt on the death of King Edward VII, and used the turn of phrase pleasant little wickednesses in reference to monarch who gave his name to the era, and about whom the major and minor personages in this book revolved, his sun to their planets and moons The phrase could have been the title of the book She knows her stuff her grandmother was Leonie Jerome Leslie, one of the Gilded Age American heiresses who shot into the British aristocracy of the later Victorian era her great aunt was Winston Churchill s mother Jennie, who may or may not have had an affair with the King Anita thinks not, as the King wasn t really Jennie s type I wasn t enad of the whole book it reads almost like listening to scandalous but quiet talk at a dinner party given by someone s grandmother Not my grandmother, mind you But someone s rich, aristocrat grandmother Still, some fascinating stories here, Edwardian legend crossed with soap opera.

    Portrait of late Victorian Edwardian society The author freely sprinkles the book with recollections of the times from her grandparents, great aunts and uncles, and their friends, who moved in the best society of the era a great aunt, for example, was Lady Randolph Churchill, the mother of Winston Churchill and a favorite of King Edward VII These recollections add immeasurably to her history and truly bring the period to life.
