    Lady Worsley's Whim: An 18th Century Tale of Sex, Scandal and Divorce by Hallie Rubenhold The Sunday Times review by James Fergusson Sunday November 09 , am, The Sunday Times. I moved between evidence and supposition to create Lady Worsley’s Whim, and in the process I feel I got to know these truly unusual people. To see one’s book appear on the shelves is a pleasure in itself, but then to witness the transformation of static word to moving image is at times almost otherworldly.
