This review is from: The Pinecone (Kindle Edition)
Sarah Losh was a proto feminist if not quite in the league of Mary Wolstencraft but worthy of this outstanding biography. She lived in Wreay (to rhyme with rear) near Carlisle. Sarah rebuilt the church of St Mary's to her own design and had a hand in many acts of largesse. The title of the biography is the 'Pinecone,' reflecting Sarah's interest in mathematics and the Fibonacci sequence.
St Mary's church anticipated the 'Arts and Crafts' movement by over half a century.
The book is a little rambling, however for a taste of the social mores of the early to mid 19th centuries in a rural parish it is invaluable. Recommended!
