Since there is very little record of her life, this was not your average biography. I liked the way Stacy was able to support the conclusions she came to, though. It was a little dry, as was expected, but Stacy injected some appropriate witticisms from time to time, that just came out of the blue. I was also able to see the author in person at a book signing here in DC, so that added to the inspiration for reading the book. She gave a great talk. And, I was inspired to watch the move (timely, with Elizabeth making the news).
