    1. Let me just start by saying that I ve moved this book way up my list of favourite Plaidys In fact, right now it stands as number 1.Goddess of The Green Room is about the life of the famous 18th century actress, Dorothy Jordan and her eventual long lasting relationship to George III s third son, William.As a very young girl, born and raised in Ireland, Dorothy started out her acting career in order to help support her family Her father had left the family, and her mother, who was once a well know [...]

    2. This is a fictionalized biography of the actress Dorothy Jordan, best known for her long relationship with George III s son William, Duke of Clarence Like most of Jean Plaidy s other books, the history is pretty solid and the book flows well I read her story of Caroline of Brunswick earlier this year, and I could definitely see the connections between that book and this one They could both absolutely stand alone, though The Georgian period in England is one that I ve been interested in only rece [...]

    3. The StoryFictional retelling of the life of Dorothy Jordan, Regency actress and mistress of the Duke of Clarence later William IV The Good History comes alive and the reading is so smooth and easy that you ve reached the end before you know it This is fictionalized historical biography done the way it should be.Plaidy juggles over a dozen principal characters and succeeds in bringing each one to life She also gives a good idea of the theatrical world of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth c [...]

    4. The best IMO historical fiction writer of the 20th century presents an account of the life of the famous Mrs Jordan, the long time mistress of the future King William IV, and the mother of his numerous illegitimate children Life is not all roses when you are a royal mistress In fact, it s quite the opposite.
