A Rounded Portrait which sets the Record Straight,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Sister Rosalind Franklin (Hardcover)
This is a delightful read as Jenifer Glynn gives a sympathetic but not sentimental account of her sister's personality and scientific achievements. It is slighter but more relaxed that Brenda Maddox's biography and does justice both to Rosalind Franklyn's driven peronality and her humanity within the family and in visits to America and time spent living in Paris. She corrects some of the grosser calumnies such as her sisters decision to spend her periods of convalescence with her brother's family or with friends not,as popularly supposed because she was estranged from her parents but because she wanted to shield her mother in particular from the realities of her illness.
