Under The Wide And Starry Sky by Nancy Horan.Library: Haddon
At the age of thirty-five, Fanny Van de Grift Osbourne has left her philandering husband in San Francisco to set sail for Belgium, with her three children and nanny in tow—to study art. She meets Robert Louis Stevenson. Fanny does not immediately take to the young lawyer who longs to devote his life to writing. In time, she succumbs to Stevenson’s charms. The shared life of these two strong-willed individuals unfolds into an impassioned and unpredictable adventure.
