I found this book to be an engaging narration of the relationship between two remarkable women. In most books on the marriage of Prince Charles and Diana the author has a bias so obvious that you know immediately who's "side" they are on. I think the whole story is tragic and so sad I think it is a case study in how not to. behave in an unfortunate marriage and divorce. Although the princess had endured the trauma of growing up in an unstable family and carried it all her life ironically she seemed to put her own sons through that same trauma. Worst than that she put especially William in the role of confidant and counselor on his young shoulders, children do not need nor should they be placed in such situations.
Charles is also not placed on a pedestal by the author. It seems as if being Prince of Wales is not an enviable position. Edward VII as Prince of Wales was a play boy who seemed to have very loose morals and got involved in scandals all the time. Edward VIII as Prince of Wales was even worse. It is definitely worth your time to listen to this book

It is not surprising that the Queens legacy will always outshine Diana's. However, I doubt even the palace would want the former Princess' name to be smeared to this level. She was not perfect. But this book offers Diana no allowances, if for nothing else, than for her naivete and youthful antics when first entering the palace gates. I doubt even her worst enemies of Windsor would find this to be a fair and balanced account.
