George Eliot was one of the most accomplished women of her time, yet she led a life full of contradiction. She was a radical feminist and a devout Christian, and she wrote some of the most scathingly critical reviews of books ever written. She was a recluse who traveled extensively and was friends with many of the great minds of her era. She was a mother and a wife, and she spent her life caring for her family and her home. Ina Taylor tells the full and complicated story of this remarkable woman, revealing the secrets behind her many contradictions and revealing the ways in which she was a pioneer in her time.; 8vo ; 255 pages; TBC;.
