KIRKUS REVIEW

It was her tragedy that she took love seriously -- so seriously that the man of the moment was always the perfect hero, incapable of imperfection, the god for whom no sacrifice was too great."" Such is the thesis on which the biography of Jane Digby, notorious woman of the 19th century, is based. Lurid divorce case, sensational succession of lovers and husbands, including princes and brigands, outfictioning fiction -- the story of a woman who loved not wisely but too well. Good reading -- and an interesting human document.
