Mrs Engels

There have been so many books written from the point of view of wives and lovers of famous men in the last couple of years – I even wrote an article on the subject for the Historical Novel Society – but Mrs Engels by Gavin McCrea is right up there as one of my favourites. The voice of Lizzie Burns is a wonderful achievement. I’ve reviewed the book for Bookbrowse and also did a follow up article about the families of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Big thumbs up for Mrs Engels from me.mrs engels
