'Bewitchingly readable, authoritative’ – The Times
Born in the eighteenth-century, Emma Hamilton was a woman ahead of her time. Her rise to fame and fortune seemed unstoppable – until she began her infamous love affair with Admiral Lord Nelson. Beloved Emma follows Emma Hamilton's journey from Liverpool to London and her life as an artist's assistant, through glittering successes as the wife of Sir William Hamilton in Naples, and that notorious romance with Nelson, to her painful descent from the heights of fame to an early death in Calais.
Flora Fraser captures the energy, purpose and sexuality that drove this extraordinary woman through her tumultuous life.
