(From the publisher):
Few people knew of the abuse and indignities that pursued enchanting Dorothy Jordon when she fled from Ireland to seek a new life in England. Even fewer suspected the troubles concealed by her glittering triumphs in Richard Sheridan's Drury Lane Theater. But behind the success that brought the world to her feet, and her celebrated love affair with the Prince Regent's young brother, the dashing Duke of Clarence, lay heartbreak and a gallant struggle to provide for her family.
All the scintillating splendour of the Regency period sparkles in this tender new episode in this novel. But it is the poignant, private joys and sorrows of Dorothy Jordan -- whom destiny thrust so close to the throne and so infinitely far away -- that is so memorable.
