A-Z April Blogging Challenge - O - OPEN DOOR by Elizabeth Maguire

Open Door by Elizabeth Maguire explores the life of Constance Fenimore Woolson, a 19th century American author.  Constance does not have an easy life, supporting her mother and brother through her writing income.

Eventually, she has an opportunity to travel to Europe and meet Henry James, whom she greatly admires.  The relationship with Henry James deteriorates over time and vendettas ensue.

I look forward to reading this historical fiction novel, especially as I have not heard about Constance Woolson prior to now.

A quote from Open Door:

“The story is the journey, not the destination. Or so the philosopher’s say. But this is my story, and it has a beginning, a middle, and an end….”
