    " Unfortunately, I didn't finish the book - but that is not because I didn't enjoy it or learn from it. I got through two-thirds of the book and it was recalled to the library. I may pick it up again after it makes its rounds. Fascinating lives and an interesting way to frame the dual biographies. "
