Grace Dalrymple was in her time a notorious divorced wife who was an 
infamous mistress and a prisoner in Revolutionary France.

Her family moved South from the Scottish Borders and Grace was to 
lead an amazing life in late 18th, early 19th Century London and 
Paris. It was the era of the Prince Regent and a decadent society 
for the aristocracy and the wealthy. Grace 's life was perhaps not 
that extraordinary for the times, but she was one of a small number 
of women living on their wits and their beauty who became notorious.

The book manages to be enthralling and scandalous, a compilation of 
Grace's story with colourful anecdotes from her life and times. 
Grace was mistress to influential men and her family knew some of 
the great characters of the period. Grace was not the only woman in 
her wider family to become mistress to great men. Her story opens 
windows into a society that existed in a country achieving greatness.

A fascinating story.
