    The Ambitions of Jane Franklin Download Æ 109 The Ambitions of Jane Franklin'The Ambitions of Jane Franklin' by Tasmanian historian Alison Alexander is a warts and all portrait of this remarkable woman who at one time the 1850s was the most talked about person in England as she organised search after search for her husband Sir John Franklin lost in his search for the North West Passage In this well researched biography the author paints a diverse picture of this woman providing insights and rationales for her behaviour invoking reactions from 'what a marvellous person' to' what an arrogant self centred woman' I came out on the side of 'virago and shrew' She alwa

    The Ambitions of Jane Franklin Download Æ 109 The Ambitions of Jane FranklinYou can tell that a lot of research went into this book which earned the author an extra star Unfortunately all of that research couldn’t mask the confusing and lackluster writing and need of tighter editing As this is the only book I’ve read specifically about Lady Franklin I cannot suggest an alternative but I would definitely try to find one before resigning yourself to a long slog through this one
