The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray

I enjoyed the intimacy and intelligence of this inside picture of a woman living somehow, miraculously and somewhat secretly, outside of accepted circumstances. I loved her boldness and intellect, her heart and sense of responsibility, and felt the hurts of her losses and longings. The insight into her social games I think were some of the most interestingly laid out parts of this book, too! I could really feel how much the authors cared about her as the complex person in the center of so much. I’m glad to know more of her, and for the incredible work she did.
