“Well-written. Kohler gives us a more multidimensional, passionate and temperamental Charlotte than most biographies… connecting the writer with her heroine is intriguing.

I enjoyed it but it took me awhile to get into it. I don't know if it was the writing style or just the topic in general. It is challenging digging into so personal a life story. Read morePublished on August 27, 2012 by S. Schaffer
