    1. Very informative, full of photographs and papers, however, the couple of factual errors are inexcusable in a book written by a genealogist.

    2. Whilst very interesting the book seemed too bogged down in the business of her heritage and other members of the family. The parts specifically about Emily were brilliant and interesting to boot.
