Jane Digby was a very modern woman living in 19th Century England. She was scandalous and admirable to the very end. Her affairs, marriages, and divorces were numerous. At age 50 she married a Bedouin Schiek half her age and lived happily with him to the end of her life.
I would like to have known more about the details of her finances, since she was a wealthy woman and built several huge and lavishly furnished houses. Where did her money come from, how was it invested, by whom, how did she receive her money in all those remote places. Minor questions only however. This book is a treasure on many levels.
