5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant book about a brilliant woman, 2 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once again Clare Mulley has produced a wonderful biography about a woman I wish I had known a lot more about a long time ago. The remarkable twists and turns in Christine Granville's life are beautifully described in this book. It seems that the author has captured the essence of Christine's intriguing personality in this page-turner. Clare Mulley's scene-setting is such that I could feel my heart racing at key points during Christine's WWII experiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful biography about an extraordinary woman, 17 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book which was beautifully written, thoroughly researched, informative and engaging. I am very pleased to have had an opportunity to learn about an individual as inspiring as Eglantyne Jebb. Although Eglantyne's life was punctuated by a series of tragic events, this biography kept me entertained not least by the insight into the author's personal journey as a biographer.
