American Jennie by Anne Sebba

Has anyone read this? I've always been fascinated by Lady Randolph Churchill and Sebba's biography is excellent, as accurate as a good biography can be, and very readable.

No I haven't but I was at a literary lunch with Ann Sebba last year when she was talking about this book. I meant to get a copy but it was a hectic event and I didn't manage. It sounded fascinating though and she had done so much research into it. My avatar pic is snipped from a group photo. If you kept going to the left, Ann Sebba would be on it!
