Résumé
"...tells the passionate love story of Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson and his tempestous American wife, Fanny. At the age of thirty-five, Fanny Van de Grift Osbourne has left her philandering husband to set sail for Belgium--with her three children and nanny in tow--to study art. It is a chance for this adventurous woman to start over, to make a better life for all of them, and to pursue her own desires. Not long after her arrival, however, tragedy strikes, and Fanny and her children repair to a quiet artists' colony in France where she can recuperate. Emerging from a deep sorrow, she meets a lively Scot, Robert Louis Stevenson, ten years her junior, who falls instantly in love with the earthy, independent, and opinionated 'belle Americaine'"--Dust jacket flap.
