Great Reads

Having an abundance of time on my hands I’ve been able to read some really good books. My favorites are always stories that are just seeing the light of day thanks to some writer stumbling across the persons amazing story and then bringing them back to life so we can appreciate them in a modern light and appreciate how radical the things they did were at the time. Both of these books are of women from England in the early 1900’s. Jane Digby was truly a woman ahead of her time and lived an amazing life but Gertrude Bell was a force to reckon with. She was a pioneer rock climber, rubbed elbows with Winston Churchill and TL Lawrence from Laurence of Arabia and was pivotal in the formation of the government’s that rule the middle east today. I assure you these stories are stranger than fiction and actually true! Expand them bwains y’all!
