I just purchased (at auction) a first edition of this book.   :) I collect first editions. I am so excited, I had to post it. I haven't read the book yet. Anyone care to share their impressions of the book?

Well done lexi4! :D

Her trilogy was interesting to read. The most informative from my perspective was Before the Storm which dealt with her early upbringing and debut into society. Wonderful images were presented of her grandfather's estate.

While critics eagerly dispel her books, I believe they are worthwhile to have. Each book has something to offer the reader.

Enjoy your new acquisition! :)

I agree with Belochka. I think her bio  on A.F. is a very good book. You made a good buy. I  really enjoyed it. F.
