Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

If there is one thing life has taught Mary Darby Robinson, it is that you can never really count on a man. As a child, Mary observed how horribly her father treated her mother. Mary’s feckless first husband, Tom Robinson, not only insisted that she give up her long-held dream of becoming an actress, he also gambled away their money and openly consorted with other women during their marriage. Forced to turn to the stage to support herself and her child, Mary is surprised when her acting draws the notice of the Prince of Wales. As it turns out, however, the prince is more interested in Mary than in her rendition of Perdita from A Winter’s Tale. Mary soon finds herself giving up everything—her career, her marriage, and her independence—for the prince’s declaration of undying love, only to find that a royal’s word is like pie crust: easily broken. Lightfoot carefully embroiders her latest absorbing novel with plenty of fascinating historical details about the hopes and heartbreaks of the real Mary Robinson. --John Charles --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Well, I have never been much of a fan of the Georgian era. This pretty much proves it. I am so glad I didn't have to live back then. I'm not on a soapbox for Women's Rights but I would have a hard time having to obey all men. This biography paints an all too true story of Mary Robinson, the Prince's mistress. She is married at 15. Her young husband gets caught up in the wrong crowd and goes to prison. She is famous for her beauty but at the end there are no friends or health left. I thought this was a truly sad story. Give this book a chance.

I admire the author in this because she didn't try to turn this into some women's lib rag. She didn't try to make Mary into a stronger character. She remained (I think) fairly true not only to the era and that mindset but the person she was writing about. Yes, Mary is a bit of a dishrag when it comes to obeying. She's self-absorbed and dang it she can be downright irritating sometimes! But that is where the writer has triumphed in this to make you still want to get to the end. Thank you, author, for actually sticking to your guns and telling the hard tale. I appreciate it!

It falls under "love story" which is ok but I like the authors other historical stories better. I guess I needed a little more history than passion.
