This review is from: A Scandalous Life: The Biography of Jane Digby (Paperback)
Mary S Lovell achieves the difficult task of keeping the narrative flowing novel-style whilst filling in enough historical detail to keep the subject in the context of it's time. A magical story of a woman well ahead of her time - a heroine of the 19th century for all women of the 21st. A Scandalous Life brilliantly conjures images of the romanticism of the east, and leaves the reader yearning for desert trips to the ancient cities of Syria, and desert nights warmed by Bedouin fires.
