In this book we follow a courtroom drama of sensation after sensation, the judge ultimately banning both public and press, the final scandalous testimony reaching to the heart of the English royal family. For the first time, the thousands of pages of documents and sealed court testimony have been unearthed and explored. Hundreds of people have been interviewed. And a writer completely knowing about society and the period has used all this material to create a compelling narrative of vitality, resonance, and fascination.

Gripping and disturbing
I have seldom read a book with so many appalling characters. That such dreadful people had the care of a child makes for very disturbing reading. Goldsmith has expertly detailed the life and tribulations of Little Gloria and her family and, as I didn't know the eventual outcome, every minute was gripping reading. Goldsmith's writing is superb, as is Hendrix's narration.

Insight into a bye gone era Poor Little Rich Girl
This biography is narrated well. The descriptions of high living, and life as the heir of a fortune...well,"Anything Goes". How money influences how children are treated...and the way those children rise up to achieve great value due to only their own diligence.
