And the widow Lady Barbara Childe, renowned for being as outrageous as she is beautiful, is at the centre of all that is fashionable and light-hearted. When she meets Charles Audley, dashing aide-de-camp to the great Duke of Wellington himself, her joie de vivre knows no bounds - until the eve of the fateful Battle of Waterloo...

This is a detailed account of Wellington/Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo thinly deguised as a novel. The plot and character development is non existent . I gave it the number of stars for historical accuracy . Only
Recommended if you have an interest in military history.
