These letters, combined with the newspaper clippings that captured the public imagination, are a gripping read into arctic exploration and the enormous dangers and costs associated. Lady Franklin is so real in her correspondence, it is hard to believe how much you can care for someone you’ve never met!
“Lady Franklin of Russell Square” was brilliant and an absolute delight to read!
