Anne Edwards paints a vivid portrait of a woman desperate in her marriage, fearful of her life, who became devious-and often brilliant-in the moves she played in a treacherous royal chess game. As in her superb biographies of other royal and celebrated women, Anne Edwards's Ever After transcends the one-sided views of Diana in a work that must be called definitive. This is the stuff of fairy tales," said the Archbishop of Canterbury on July 23, 1981, after the 20-year-old Lady Diana Spencer arrived in a glass coach for her wedding to Prince Charles. But everyone knows how that fairy tale ended.

Diana and the life she LED. Anne edwards. The author and publisher have provided this e-book to you for your personal use only. St. Martin’s Paperbacks. For catherine sadler grill with love.

Overnight, Diana Spencer emerged from relative obscurity to become the most famous--and most photographed--woman in the world. By all appearances, her marriage to Prince Charles was a Cinderella story come to life. Everyone knows how the fairy tale ended, but few people know that Diana's debut into the House of Windsor was as carefully manipulated as her public persona--and no one could have imagined what it would ultimately cost her.Drawing from extensive research and exclusive interviews, acclaimed biographer Anne Edwards unveils the portrait of an enigmatic legend to give us never-before-revealed details of Diana's life; of her upbringing in a cold, autocratic family; of her search for love; of her tumultuous marriage with the Prince of Wales; and of an iconic princess who was as powerful a force as the Royal Family had ever encounter. Anne Edward paints and unforgivable portrait of a woman desperate in her marriage, fearful for her life, caught up in an ever more treacherous royal chess game.

I was an admirer of the late Princess but, unlike many other people I know, in no way could I be considered a "Di-junkie." I make this distinction only to show that I am not indiscriminate in my fascination with the poor woman. As a result, I have not read most of the slightly hysterical Di biographies, and I have been offended by the few that I did read. Still, I do have a certain curiosity about what really went on behind the poised and gracious facade of the public Diana. Here, Anne Edwards has written the definitive work, scholarly to be sure, addressing the Princess of Wales as an author would any other historical figure. According to her own notes, Ms. Edwards began this project before the Princess' sudden death. The book is detailed and filled a multitude of exactly the kind of facts that are valuable to anyone with a background in historic research. There is a thorough explanation of who the very sweet and young noblewoman was in terms of her own family's prestigious history and expectations. The clear conclusion is that this innocent girl was used, callously and deliberately, to satisfy both the breeding needs and the media relations requirements of the Royal family. Yet at no time does Ms. Edwards appear partisan toward Diana, nor does she engage in imaginative psychobabble to attempt to understand what made the much-loved (by everyone except her ex-husband and his family!) Diana tick. The result is a book which is the Diana resource that historians will rely on in centuries to come. I look forward to reading other works by Ms. Edwards.

This book wasn't bad. It's an easy read, but I really don't understand the author's stance that Diana and Dodi were actually in love and discussing a future together when they had only known each other for several weeks. In fact, she is quite sympathetic to the Fayeds in general. It kind of makes me wonder what her relationship is to Mohammed al Fayed, because her account squares very nicely with his (Diana and Dodi looked at engagement rings together, were planning to marry, etc.).

While I consider myself a Diana expert and have read everything about her since 1981, I am always looking for a new insight or a new spin on things that are already public knowledge. I was pleased with the book but it reassembled many parts out of previous books to make this book. I was also disappointed to see a reference to a trip to Monte Carlo to pick out the supposed engagement ring, but anyone who has read the Trevor Rees-Jones' book knows that no such visit occured. I am also disappointed when the writer makes more of the summer romance then what it was, never taking into consideration the short length of time the 2 spent together and Diana's need to make another man jealous.

I'm currently enrolled in a course on writing biographies, taught by Anne Edwards at the UCLA Extension Program. On the first day of the course the author brought an assorted copies of some of the 24 books that she's written over the years and we were each asked to choose one to read during the ten-week course. I read a lot of biographies but I had never yet read one of Anne's. Though I am a bit of a self-confessed Anglophile, "Ever After, Diana and the Life she Led" wouldn't have naturally been my first choice. Most of the others were already taken however, and Anne suggested that I might enjoy reading this one.

The tragic death of Princess Diana is one of those moments in one's life where were one knows exactly the instant that one heard the heartbreaking news.

I'm quite pleased indeed that this was the one she suggested. I found Edwards writing style very engaging and though cliché or not, I found the book very difficult to put down. I enjoyed it immensely. Edwards has a way of recreating the feeling of the moment exactly as when it occurred. She has a talent of bringing in all of the senses so that you really feel that you are there, standing in the moment. "Park House, Diana's home, was a ten-bedroom Victorian country house with staff cottages, stables and a tennis court. Although it was four miles inland, easterly winds brought the scent of salt to remind the occupants of the area's seafaring history."

I found it thoroughly enjoyable, so much so, that I've decided to order a number of Edwards other books from here on Amazon.

This books goes into more details that i never knew about the late Princess of Wales before. It is well informative and hard to put down. In certain chapters you wish you could just jump in and comfort Diana during her troubled times. THis books also reveals how Camilla and one of Charles other paramours saw Diana as a navie young girl who would be glad to wear a crown and look the other way for they considered her not to bright and Charles could carry on his affairs with Diana none the wiser...but she proved them wrong and Camilla soon found that the woman she had decided to be Charles bride was going to become a thorn in her side and who would go on to become one of the most beautiful, compassoniate and photographed woman of our time, emerging as an icon who will never be forgotten. From the first page to the last, you wont be able to put this novel down and yet you dread the ending for you know that this fairy tale does not end with happily ever after.
