Description

It is August 1805 and Admiral Lord Nelson is travelling home to his mistress Emma, Lady Hamilton, after two years absence. Emma is the doyenne of reinvention; from servant to prostitute, she becomes the mistress of a country gentleman, and of an aristocrat, before marrying the British Ambassador at Naples. Having regained her respectability, Emma flings away her reputation to live in a triad with her husband and Nelson. It is the scandal of the age. London's first supermodel and reputedly Europe's most beautiful woman, Emma inspires a generation of painters; she is the toast of Society and a friend of the Prince Regent. Nelson aches to see her, but how long will they have together before he joins HMS Victory and sails for Trafalgar? This is Emma and Nelson's story, told in their own words, and those of their friends ... and enemies.show more
