From the cover: “While Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, is always a popular subject for biography, little is known of her cousin, Abigail Hill, named Queen Anne 'That Enchantress', the girl whom the Duchess 'raised', as she boasted 'from the dust', and who outrivaled her for the favour of the Queen. The author gives us the intimate life-story of this girl who began her career as a lady's maid, and on whose whim was strung the fate of two great political parties, and of the men who led them.”
