Description
"[Fanny] Kemble (180993), the most famous English-speaking actress of her day, gave it all up to marry one of America's richest plantation owners. However, her disgust at slavery spurred her to write Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation, which was a groundbreaking work challenging the institution of slavery. But this is not just Fanny's story. [Ann] Blainey devotes half of the book to Adelaide, Fanny's younger sister, who was an opera star in her own right. This first full biography of Adelaide was written with Blainey's exclusive use of Kemble family letters. [A] fresh, scholarly look at two daring women."Library Journal
