The Ladies

Book - 1993
Rate this:
This is a touching, imaginative retelling of the story of two of history's most interesting characters: Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby, well-born Irish women who defied all conventions of their 18th-century Irish homeland and eloped to the small hamlet of Llangollen in Wales, where they lived as a married couple. There, removed from the eyes of the world, they hoped to live out their quiet lives. but the world outside gradually came to claim the ladies - first out of curiosity, but eventually on the basis of profound respect and even love.
