Judging by 21st century norms,
This review is from: England's Mistress: The Infamous Life of Emma Hamilton (Hardcover)
Whoa. I admit to finding it a page turner but every 10 pages I was arrested by a large unsubstantiated assumption, by a gross ignorance especially in relation to hunting, or by judgments, using wholly 21st century norms, upon actions of people who lived nearly 250 years ago.
Additionally in a reversal of supposed patterns - men are judged frequently - women never. Most unbalanced.
It is a work of fiction not biography. I should have recognised this from the image on the cover of the paperback edition I held in my hand.
