Divided by time. Bound by a secret...

1911: When fifteen-year-old Mary Kirk meets Wallis Warfield at summer camp, she’s immediately captivated by her fearless, brazen, and self-assured personality. And Wallis has a way with the boys who are drawn to her like moths to a flame. Though Mary’s family isn’t crazy about her new best friend, she steadfastly stands by her side—even years later when they’re adults and rumors swirl about Wallis and her reckless behavior with none other than the Prince of Wales.

Review:  This book brings all my favorite things to the table; the British Royal Family and history. I have to admit that knowing that Princess Diana was part  of the story was a huge draw for me. I've been a Diana fan since I was a little girl. But this book tells another story too, that of Wallis Simpson.

Its actually the part of the story that involves Wallis that really makes the book so wonderful. Two women that changed the face of the monarchy, one that was well loved and the other not. I wish the Diana angle would have been more interesting.

It was Mary and Wallis that carried the story and they did it well. This was a beautifully written novel about two very important women.

I absolutely loved this book
