The real-life inspiration for modern-day mystery writer Elizabeth Peters's "Amelia Peabody" novels, celebrated Victorian adventuress Amelia Edwards enjoyed unexpected notoriety, for a woman, as a journalist, political activist, and world traveler. In 1872, she a female companion set off on a "ramble" through the nearly impassable Italian Dolomites, where food and shelter were chancy propositions but the scenery was gorgeous and the people friendly and welcoming. Edwards approached the expedition with humor and enthusiasm, as she regales us with the tale of the journey with the generous, vivacious spirit that made her one of her era's most daring women. - Back cover

"This book was an immediate contemporary success and established Amelia Edwards's reputation as a novelist. The story of a young woman's growth from chidlhood to maturity is traced through her relationship with Hugh Farquhar whom she idolises from the first moment when, still a child, she meets him, already a mature man of the world. The development of their love for each other makes challenging and even painful demands upon them both before it reaches final fruition. This story of a spirited and talented heroine is set against the background of life in France and Germany and Italy and is rich in narrative and character."--Back cover

" ... Hamel, unorthodox minister of a small French Protestant community [is] not only sophisticated and highly cultivated but he is also possessed of a powerful sexual magnetism ... When he falls in love with the young and innocent Marguerite, he is brought into striking contrast with the accepted suitor, Charles, a man of inflexible rectitude but, initially at least, little appeal. The progress of their rivalry for Marguerite's favour draws on the resources, intellectual and emotional, of both of them, till it issues in the final dramatic climax."--Back cover
