Publisher's Summary

Emma Hamilton came to be recognized as the most beautiful woman of her age and has become immortal in history for her romantic involvement with Nelson, England's greatest hero. As well as beauty, she had great gifts: she was a singer of professional ability, a natural linguist and actress, and a shrewd behind-the-scenes politician. She captivated almost everyone with her warm-hearted, extroverted charm. Yet she aroused bitter jealousy and has been persistently branded with the stigma of loose morals - largely due to misunderstandings about some circumstances of her early life.

Nice story, that's all.

I think this is a story the paparazzi would of picked up on, telling just the juicy bits and leaving out a lot of the detail, for instance Emma was a dame in Her own right, she was an 'honorary knight hospitaller' for her assistance when the British took Malta from the French, that she was more help to the British in Naples then her ambassador husband Sir William. That she payed for schooling for her in-laws children and cleared their debts. She did die in obscurity from amebic dysentry, her grave was attended by her friends in Calais, and is still looked after today. So I'm afraid only one star and that's for entertainment value.
