“Gill Paul has taken two of the twentieth century’s most enigmatic women, one revered, the other reviled, and woven them into a deft story of friendship and betrayal.” Kate Riordan
“Having loved The Secret Wife I was looking forward to Gill’s latest novel of royal intrigue, but wondered how she would manage to weave a story involving two controversial but very different British royal wives. The answer is with great verve and a smattering of delicious fictional licence. Delightful.” Liz Trenow
“With superb story-telling and a lush backdrop of period detail, Paul crafts a novel that is impossible to put down, about two women who are impossible to forget. Sure to be a huge success, I loved it!” Hazel Gaynor
