Really enjoyed this and the commentary about marriage across the last 150or so years. Each of the wives selected was fascinating in their own right and then the comparison with Forster and Davies marriage made this book really live for me. Beautifully written and clear arguments put forward.

Really enjoyed this book. The lives of the three historic figures provide an interesting contrast with modern day lives. Forster writes in such an absorbing manner, I'm sure she could make a review of a sewage works sound fascinating!

Very interesting but needs to be read in quite small doses. A lot of detail especially about Mary and Fanny
