內容簡介

電影《真寵》中馬爾伯羅公爵夫人莎拉.邱吉爾傳記。

莎拉.邱吉爾是第一任的馬爾伯羅公爵夫人,迷人但受人爭議,她與丈夫建立了史賓賽 – 邱吉爾王朝,其最知名的後代是英國首相溫斯頓.邱吉爾與黛安娜王妃。

莎拉與安妮女王維繫著非常親密的友誼,並且希望能夠握有與政府大臣同等的權力。當兩人關係變調,莎拉以揭露她倆親密關係的黑函威脅安妮女王,並且指控安妮寵幸女同性戀而耽誤國事。在建造布倫海姆宮的期間,她與女王、建築師、工匠甚至家人之間的爭論,使得她的壞脾氣人盡皆知。在男性間受到讚賞的性格,到了莎拉身上反而成為被攻擊的標的。她能夠激發強烈的愛與忠誠,且忠於原則,矢志過著她自認為的賢德生活。

莎拉同時也是不斷激勵自己寫作的人,她把每天的重要事件記下來,而事件的核心通常是她自己。這本傳記栩栩如生地展現了莎拉的口吻、熱情與聰明,並且從關於她的藝術、歷史和文獻中,以批判式的眼光看待這位第一任馬爾伯羅公爵夫人。

The scandalous true story of the duchess who became her beloved queen's blackmailer, published in a new and updated edition to coincide with the Oscar nominated film starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz.

Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough, was as glamorous as she was controversial. Politically influential and independently powerful, she was an intimate, and then a blackmailer, of Queen Anne, accusing her of keeping lesbian favourites - including Sarah's own cousin Abigail Masham.

Ophelia Field's masterly biography brings Sarah Churchill's own voice, passionate and intelligent, back to life. Here is an unforgettable portrait of a woman who cared intensely about how we would remember her.

'An incredible story crackling with royal passion, envy, ambition and betrayal ... Field's account of the psychological power play between Queen Anne and her confidante is surely definitive. A tour de force' Lucy Worsley
