Être aimée quand est forte?

Le livre est très bien sur la vie des femmes à l’époque victorienne, durant la guerre américaine. Une femme forte et active qui aide son père puis son mari, tout en supportant mère et enfants. Un peu déprimant de voir à quel point l’histoire les écarte et les oublie. Finalement elle obtient une victoire personnelle et la paix à travers l’écriture, mais encore aujourd’hui la bataille n’est pas gagnée.
