Summary
From her days as a convent schoolgirl on the European continent to her later life traveling across the wilds of America as an independent woman, Theresa Longworth Yelverton becomes a woman larger than life, when all she had wanted was a life as large as a home with a husband inside it. Tells the story of Theresa Longworth, a Victorian Englishwoman whose husband abandoned her, forcing her to prove in court that they were ever married, in a book that conveys riveting courtroom drama, full of steamy accusations and intrigue, as well as Longworth's life afterward as a successful unmarried author and speaker
