KIRKUS REVIEW

This novelized biography of Fanny Kemble by the author of Weep No More treats Fanny Kemble both as an exciting feminine figure and as a vigorous crusader for human rights. An account of her early theatrical rise to fame, her marriage to a wealthy young American whose tactics with his Negro slaves spur on her interest in reform, and of her gifted and lonely maturity are dramatically portrayed. A novel of both historical and personal interest.
