Essential reading for anyone in a relationship,
By A Customer
This review is from: Good Wives: Mary, Fanny, Jennie and Me, 1845-2001 (Paperback)
A really interesting read - and once again from Margaret Forster - in the most beautiful style. Not only can M Forster make anyone interesting, she continues to pick exciting, relevant and intriguing people to write about.
The biography of Mary Livingstone was particularly thrilling for me, but all three biographies are stunningly told - just enough detail. The "reflections" following are astute, and capture beautiful insights into the author's own marriage and views on wives. Really good - I shall give it to my mother-in-law!
