They were beautiful, influential, and famous to all in their early bright. Some of the praises we know, some are now obscure. But in 19th centennial America, they were the most talked-about and written-about matrons in the nation. Journalist Virginia Peacock rubbed shoulders with them and the people who knew them. In this lively and fascinating account of their prospers, Peacock gives us the ravishing Jennie Jerome (mom to Winston Churchill) and the brilliant Kate Chase Sprague, who practically ruled Washington society during the Lincoln committee. Peacock also covers Madame Le Vert, Jesse Benton Fremont (helpmate of The Wanderer), Gentlewomen Curzon, and more. To be a belle endure the pinnacle of society for these matrons but their influence on fashion and their powerful bridegrooms made them forces to be reckoned with.

** spoiler alert ** Though less than 300 pages, the heavy thesis matter of this little parable makes it drag on for much longer. The site is the small town of Oran in Africa, struck with plague and closed off from its mediums. Camus's nonfiction is simple, but dense. The unnamed narrator cooly documents the escalating catastrophe and the public's acclimation to the weekly deaths and austere lifestyle. It's near impossible to become invested in the aspects and get lost in the novel with said narrator making general noticings on Human Nature in the Take of Misfortune every few pages. However, I grew fond of Rambert, the visiting scribe separated from his infatuation, and of Awe-inspiring, the aspiring novelist, simply because of his anomaly. Besides Camus's delightful absurdism, philosophical trumps such as these kept me paraphrase: "[Man] is incapable of misfortune for a long generation, or being happy for a long generation. Which means that he's incapable of all really worth while." (149) It didn't occur to me that this book was an parable for enlightenment in Nazi-occupied France. It really should have, since the other book assigned by my school was The Book Thief.
