Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan came from Ballantine and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
A novel about Robert Louis Stevenson and his American wife Fanny? I do love reading novelizations about my favorite authors' lives and I have loved RLS since I dove head first into Treasure Island one summer when I was a child.
