Amelia Lost

Amelia Lostby Candace Fleming

In this no-frill biography, the touching devotion of Amelia’s husband comes through vividly. (I looked him up on the internet and found that he’s the grandson and namesake of the prominent American publisher, G.P. Putnam. It was not clearly stated in the book his relationship with this publishing company.) I appreciate that Fleming makes it quite clear how pig-headed and impulsive Amelia was. She’s a heroine whose lasting impact on women’s social status cannot be denied, but one that is real and full of personal histories and faults, not on a lofty pedestal.
