This 'DOOR' was shut too quickly...
Before reading this book I had never even heard of Constance Fenimore Woolson, nor of the author who wrote it, the late Elizabeth Maguire. However, I have always loved auto-biographical novels and I think it was partially the 'nostalgic' photo on the book cover, before I read B&N's online cogent editorial reviews, that convinced me I absolutely NEEDED to read this 'pseudo memoir' --and, I can happily say I am soooo glad I did! I only wish that the "OPEN DOOR" had remained OPEN for a much longer time period in Woolson's life, as well as that of the young author who wrote about her! Both women's lives, ironically, though the former lived in the 19th century and the latter in the 21st century, ended, tragically, much, much too soon. Women of any age will be enthralled with this story. That I can promise you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
