Lady of Passion
by Freda Lightfoot
Her face was her fortune – but also her downfall
Beautiful and talented actress, poet and fashion icon, Mary Robinson was one of the most famous women of her time – yet she died virtually penniless, her reputation in ruins. For Mary was destined always to be betrayed by the men she loved – her father, her husband and, most seriously, by the Prince of Wales, later George IV, for whom Mary gave up her career, her husband and her independence, only to be cruelly abandoned. This is her enthralling story: a tale of ambition, passion, scandal and heartbreak.
Genre: Historical fiction
“Lightfoot carefully embroiders her latest absorbing novel with plenty of fascinating historical details about the hopes and heartbreaks of the real Mary Robinson.”
