    Winner of the 1982 National Book Award for Biography, Mornings on Horseback is the brilliant biography of the young Theodore Roosevelt. Hailed as a masterpiece by Newsday, it is the story of a remarkable little boy -- seriously handicapped by recurrent and nearly fatal attacks of asthma -- and his struggle to manhood.

    Story

    I love David McCullough, but the narrator here read the book with a very sarcastic attitude toward the charactors which interfered with the story. McCullough also disapointed by claiming that all asthma is pscho-psomatic, and not acknowledge current medical knowledge that recognizes asthma is an auto-immune disease. It puts all the research for the book in question to have an entire chapter on Roosevelt's life long battle with this disease treated as a psychological disorder, rather than the serious physical challenge it presented for him. Another disappointment was the way this very long narrative ends - almost mid-sentence, and certainly mid-thought. As if McCullough ran out of notes, and couldn't be bothered to bring the book to a conclusion.

    Having just jilted the Marquis of Rotherham, Lady Serena takes a house in Bath with her friend Fanny. The Marquis is not amused.

    Roxane says: "Sian Phillips is a delight!"
    "A fun, entertaining book"
    Overall

    My first book by Heyer, and it was a fun and enjoyable book. Great for Austen fans.
