SCANDALOUS LADY W, THE

Synopsis

She was a spirited young heiress. He was a handsome baronet with a promising career in government. Their marriage had the makings of a fairy tale but ended as one of the most highly publicised divorces in history. For years the story of Lady Worsley, her vengeful husband, and her lover, George Maurice Bisset, lay forgotten. This account throws open a window to a view of Georgian England coloured by passion, adventure and the defiance of social convention.
