Ojala, Jeanne A. & William T.
[1626-1696] Widowed at 25, with two children to raise, M de Sevigne resisted the pressure to remarry. She rather relished her freedom to travel, read, and form fascinating friendships. The record she left us is full of the events of the times - political, religious, artistic. History of wars, medicine, social life, courtly life, all revealed in intimate letters. This delightful biography is peppered with excerpts from her letters. Scarce book. Berg's Women's Series, St. Martin's Press, 1990. Hb, dj. NEW. $50.00
