About the book: This book offers a fresh twist on the genre of historical fiction and forever changes our view of the author of Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Horan evocatively re-creates the passionate and powerful love story of Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and his intrepid American wife, Fanny Van de Grift Osbourne, who played a key role in his career. Ambitious and breathtaking as only Nancy Horan can create.
