Margaret the First by Danielle Dutton

Rating: 3 stars

This is a lovely little novel, with some beautiful prose, and some interesting, though unexplored, thoughts. It is about Margaret Cavendish, a writer in an age when woman did not write, and if they did, they published their works anonymously. 1,435 more words
