Another great book that I adored beyond all reason. It made me fall in love with Elizabeth as a person, a strong-willed and lucky woman who beat all the odds and made it to the top. Her can-do character and the fact that she proceeded the way she did on her own merit and without male representation later in life made her an ideal role model for me. I know better about the whole role model thing now, but I still feel like this book formed a big part of my character.
