Tomalin is a great writer and Mary Wollstonecraft is a woman I should know more about.

7 out of 10

Mary Wollstonecraft is an intriguing character, a real iconoclast in a time where women ventured little into politics or the world of the arts. Wollstonecraft truly had an extraordinary life. Having lived a spinster's existence in her 20s, she wrote A Vindication of the Rights of Women, then burst into life, moving to the Paris of The Terror and giving birth to illegitimate children. She was a selfish woman but also a passionate one in her beliefs - I enjoyed reading about her a lot.

I will release this book into the wild - I hope whoever finds it enjoys it. When you have finished with the book, please send it out into the world for someone else to find. Thanks so much and welcome to Bookcrossing!
