Millions of readers have enjoyed the prose of Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), but few of us know much, if anything about the extraordinary relationship of the author of Treasure Island and Kidnapped with the American woman who became his wife. Francis Van de Grift Osbourne Stevenson (1840-1914) was the plucky survivor of a teenage marriage with a serial philanderer. Her friendship with the fledgling writer began in a Parisian artist community and, after multiple separations, blossomed into romance. The passion and the drama of this extraordinary 19th century pair come alive in this new novel by Loving Frank author Nancy Horan.
