I googled some of these women and they are really interesting. But this book was just an info dump and not in an interesting way. And there were odd details that got way more time than needed (about what they wore and what their figure looked like) and the author really overused words like beauty/beautiful in this book.
A fair chunk of this book isn't even original content. There were a lot of photos and excerpts from other stuff these sections were usually as long as the section that the author actually wrote.
I guess it is useful if you want all this info compiled in one place, but there is plenty of info at your fingertips on google that is better written.
Perhaps the most profound and moving of these portraits are those of the women who made no real "mark"-- except in the memories of the people whose lives they touched. Those memories live on to this day, and it is wonderful that they are remembered in this book.
The purpose of books like this is threefold: to entertain, to enlighten, and to bright to light the stories of women who have-- unfairly-- languished in obscurity. Seagraves does important work here that not only entertains but encourages readers to learn even more. I intend to do so.
