3 out of 10. I appreciate a well researched book. I also appreciate a well edited book. This was an over researched, under edited slog. At least 50 pages could have been edited out. I don't know much about Elizabeth Barrett and after reading this, I don't want to know anything. She was written as a rich, spoiled, self obsessed, cold bitch. Sorry for the language, but that's the word that fits.
