It was the divorce that scandalised Georgian England... 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 salacious and highly publicised divorces in history.
For over two hundred years the story of Lady Worsley, her vengeful husband, and her lover, George Maurice Bisset, lay buried in long-forgotten newspapers, overlooked pamphlets and yellowing satires. No other author, past or present, has told it before. Now Hallie Rubenhold, in her impeccably researched book, brings the three protagonists back to life and presents a rarely seen picture of aristocratic life in the Georgian era.
