    One thought on “The Prince And The Lily”

    1. I struggled with the writing style in this book It probably would have been helpful if he had subdivided the chapters to show when he was going to follow a new thought Instead, he breaks off in the middle of a thought to provide historical context Sometimes the historical context is obviously relevant and brief, sometimes it is interesting but tangential and prolonged, so that I lost the thread of the overarching story.Also, the book is really about Lillie Langtry, mistress of Edward VII Edward [...]

    2. Lillie Langtry hails from the island of Jersey where she grew up in a family of all brothers Independent, outgoing and determined, Lily marries a wealthy man so she can move away from the island of her birth Her goal is to reach London and become a mover in the society of England At long last she is discovered and enjoys every minute Her husband, Edward, wishes he had never left the country but sullenly accompanies her wherever she goes.Lillie earns the love of the prince much to Queen Victoria [...]

    3. Does anyone remember the PBS series from a very long time ago Even before the age of taping and VCR ing So one had to be a devoted fan to catch the whole thing I was.Need I say, The book was better Rather than just the adulterous affair of Lily Langtry and Price Edward, Brough chooses to convey a whole era and lots of background and culture as well as an easily digestible amount of history.

    4. The best thing about this book was its title It s one of those unfortunate impulse grabs while in the biography section at the library More unfortunately, when we were out of power for two weeks I actually read it It s just bad boring writing about a selfish immoral woman who was Prince Albert Edward s mistress for a few years Total yuck.

    5. There wasn t that much much about Lily Langtry I learned about Queen Victoria and her massive extended family The writing itself was good, but it felt terribly padded.
