5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating subject sensitively handled, 21 April 2009
This review is from: A Scandalous Life: The Biography of Jane Digby (Paperback)
Other reviews have said what an interesting read this is and I thoroughly agree. It's a gripping tale of a remarkable life led by a very interesting and paradoxical woman.

I would also add to the other positive reviews by saying that in terms of the quality of the biography I take my hat off to Mary Lovell. Jane Digby's story would be easy to sensationalise and speculate about, but Lovell handles the source material skillfully and weaves an excellent narrative that skips along without betraying the factual integrity of the story. She also regularly de-bunks unsubstantiated myths and rumours that persist about Jane.

Jane led a scandalous life by the standards of Victorian England but she never courted scandal for its own sake and wanted to escape her notoriety. I think that she would indeed be pleased with this account of her life!
