It's something right out of a fairy tale--a powerful monarch tossing aside his crown for love. "The King and Mrs. Simpson: The True Story of a Commoner Who Captured the Heart of a King" is the reality of this true story that happened seventy years ago. Though the events really did happen, the approach treats them like a story out of a romance novel, choosing the avenue of creative nonfiction and using it well. Drawn from the couple's letters and documents, "The King and Mrs. Simpson: The True Story of a Commoner Who Captured the Heart of a King" is sure to please those who like their history with a little flair, and a must for community library creative nonfiction collections.
