"A tale well worth telling . . ."
-Antonia Fraser, author of Marie Antoinette: The Journey

"Oh, may I see my beloved friends again, for they are dearer still to me than all else in the world!--She is the kindest, dearest, best most beloved of friends--and he is and must be ever the very soul of my existence. I will cease to live in error with him, tho' with shame and blushes I confess it, one moment passed in his arms, one instant pressed to his heart, effaces every sorrow, every fear, every thought but him."
-From the journals of Lady Elizabeth Foster as quoted in Elizabeth & Georgiana

She was a lonely young woman of noble birth, condemned to a life of poverty and disgrace. They were one of the wealthiest and most glamorous couples in England. When they appeared on her doorstep one day and whisked her into the dazzling and glittering world at the very pinnacle of the British upper class, how could she not fall in love?

Elizabeth & Georgiana tells the poignant and provocative true story of what may be the most remarkable and enduring love triangle in history. Drawing on hundreds of previously unpublished letters and thousands of journal entries written by Lady Elizabeth Foster, this intriguing journey to the heart of passion will shock you, delight you, and challenge your beliefs about friendship, loyalty, and the true nature of love.
