Duchess: A Novel of Sarah Churchill - Susan Holloway Scott Much more of a political account than I expected.
It was interesting from a historical perspective but I could never warm to Sarah. I would, however, like to read more of John Churchill.

One other thing bothered me, given the extensive research that went into this novel, there was a major historical innacuracy in the author's note.

She writes that James Francis Edward Stuart had only one son, Charles Edward Stuart aka Bonnie Prince Charlie.

This is incorrect. He had a second surviving son by the same wife, Maria Clementina Sobieska, Henry Benedict Stuart, (11 March 1725 ��� 13 July 1807) who became a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church.
