A compelling non-fiction read which traces the marital fortunes of Mary Eleanor Bowes, Lady Strathmore (a forebear of the late Queen Mother). The book details her marriages, and her separation and ultimate divorce from the charismatic and viciously cruel Andrew Stoney as well as the nail biting tale of her abduction and escape. The book also chronicles the development of divorce law in Britain and the gradual improvement in the status of women.
