Book summary: Through One Administration

1883 BY FRANCES HODGSON BURNETT

Through One Administration is one of Frances Hodgson Burnett's most fascinating novels.At its centre is Bertha Amory, a society wife in nineteenth century Washington D.C. Married to a lawyer, her safe world is disrupted when a former acquaintance returns to the city. Philip Tredennis first met Bertha years earlier, when they were both young. Returning to find her married to another man, yet obviously not in love with him, Tredennis can only watch and try to do what he can for Bertha and the situation in which she find herself.Frances Hodgson Burnett lived in Washington D.C. for many years and brilliantly recreates the world she knew so well, where even the most seemingly superficial of characters may show unexpected depth when observed in the right way.
