Our Mutual Friend Charles Dickens
Nancy Horan has written a delightful story of the love affair of author, Robert Louis Stevenson, & his tempestuous wife, Fanny. - We become close companions & friends of both "Louis" & Fanny in the mid-1800's. - Their marriage was the very definition of "true love ways," especially when times were tough. - So well written, by book's end, I was saddened to have Louis & Fanny pass out of my life. - More stories, Nancy Horan, more stories!
