Publisher's Summary

A dramatic, sparkling tale of sex, glamour, intrigue, romance and heartbreak, England's Mistress traces the rise and rise of the gorgeous Emma Hamilton.
Born into poverty, she clawed her way up through London’s underworlds of sex for sale to become England’s first media superstar. Nothing could stand in the way of her dreams– except her self-destructive desires. Drawing on hundreds of previously undiscovered letters, and told with a novelist's flair, England's Mistress captures the relentless drive, innovative style and burning passion of a true heroine. In a world of tabloid fame and three-minute wonders, Emma’s life is truly a tale for our time.

So far so bad...

I've listened to about 2 hours of it and i'm not sure I'll be able to finish it...My only consolation is that I used a credit to buy it and didn't have to waste my money...

Interesting but not a novel!

I enjoyed finding out more about Emma and Nelson in this audiobook but this is a biography of Emma rather than a novelisation of the events in her life. Great detail about life during this period and the celebrities of the time.
