Starting in 1608 and travelling chronologically up to 1949, with a chapter for each woman, this book tells the remarkable stories of four elite women in country houses who chose not to marry. The four women are: Elizabeth Isham of Lamport Hall, Robinson of Saltram, Anne Lister of Shibden Hall, and Rosalie Chichester of Arlington Court. One of these women chose to dedicate herself to God, one was a successful business woman, one chose to nurture and protect, and one chose to write and travel the globe. This book tells their remarkable stories, revealing how strong, resilient, and powerful women have always been throughout history.
