Gordon was a member of Victorian London's literary circle including Dickens, Thackery, and Tennyson when she was forced by ill health to travel to the dry climate of Egypt. There she embraced the culture and people of Egypt and used her experiences to write a best- seller, Letters from Egypt. Frank, author of two other biographies, explores Duff's early life and how her adoption of Egypt as her home affected her personal relationships. Includes b&w photos and pictures.
