A little of this and a little of that.

Mary Anne by Daphne DuMaurier


Mary Anne by Daphne DuMaurier
An ambitious, stunning, and seductive young woman, Mary Anne finds the single most rewarding way to rise above her miserable cockney world: she will become the mistress to a royal duke. In doing so, she provokes a scandal that rocks Regency England. Mary Anne glitters with sex, scandal, corruption, and the privileged world of high society.  Based on the true story of one of du Maurier's own distant relatives, Mary Anne's love of money and the men who spend it embroil her in risks that threaten her very existence.

I am a fan of Daphne Du Maurier, I just love her writing… but this book is so different than Daphne du Maurier's other novels.  I couldn’t get into the story and I wasn’t interested in the political details.  The court scenes did drag with endless pages of testimony and dialogue…ugh.  Although this isn’t one of my favorite from this author, I'm glad I read it.
