Reviews

  • Weir’s sympathetic and detailed biography reassesses the life of a woman whose role in public life…has been underrated by historians

    New Statesman
  • The finest historical novel ever written by an American

    Washington Post
  • It would be easy to over-praise this novel; but there does not seem any adequate reason why this temptation should be resisted

    Economist
  • A novel of extraordinary range, yet of extraordinary minuteness, that manages never to sacrifice one quality for the other

    Financial Times
  • Williams has fashioned an always engaging, psychologically convincing work of fiction - a consistent and well-realized portrait

    New Yorker
