.......and I'm still not quite sure what I think of her. (I think this is a good thing in a biography.) Certainly a fascinating mixture of events, time, attitudes and activities. Lively writing and an interesting story. There are achievements and ability to admire in Gertrude Bell, but I wonder if I'm the only reader left with a slight (and unaccountable) feeling that I distrust her? That doesn't take away from my enjoyment of the book, however.
