Looking for a good summer read, I picked up Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire by Amanda Foreman and was immediately enthralled by the life of this amazing woman.  Born into a life of privilege, Georgiana nonetheless faces losing everything she has due to gambling debts and an affair with a certain young man.  This book reads more like Gossip Girl than a biography and will hold your attention all the way through.  The book is being made into a movie out later this year, which will star Keira Knightley as the Duchess, and will be full of grand costumes and sumptuous sets.
