    I wanted the knowledge about Lady Anne Clifford because Jim and I did a walking tour of England which included many of her castles and properties. She is an interesting person in that she fought for and won "ownership" of the properties. Normally all land and property went to the male heir or if no direct heir...entailed to a male relative. The fact that her father's will allowed for some lee way is interesting and the fact that her mother and her fought legally for her rights is amazing. She finally became the heiress of the property when she was 60...but she didn't say she was too old. She spent money and effort to rebuild the castles and properties. Did a lot to help the tenants on the lands...lots of good. It is a dry read...taken from diaries, journals, history books and other people's biographies which somehow effected her and her life. So I didn't read it in one night...but when I did read it...I found a lot for further research. I understand a little more of Oliver Cromwell and his becoming "Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland, and Ireland" when there was no King or Queen. Wow...wild times for the British.I'm glad that one of the owners of the B & B's we stayed at knew about the book and I found it in England and started reading it while on our walking tour. She was some strong, smart lady. Maybe too proud...but did a lot with her lands to be a go steward to future generations and some amount of just helping others...her tenants or those who could not help her in return.

    Decent biography of one of English histories more colourful characters. Born in Elizabeth 1st reign and with a life story as varied and colourful as anyone at the time one wonders why her story has never made it to film or TV. Book pays a bit too much detail to the Triptych painting (and alas doesn't show it in colour)
