5296. Immortal Wife The Biographical Novel of Jessie Benton Fremont by Irving Stone (read 25 Jul 2015) While this is labelled 'fiction' it is mostly accurate as to the history involved, with lots of dialogue invented. To the extent it is historical I found it good reading, even if some of the interaction between Jessie and her husband, John C. Fremont, is pretty gushy. Undoubtedly Jessie was a hyped-up woman eager to do what she could for her husband. .Fremont had many great accomplishments but did have a penchant for getting into trouble. And in view of their extravagant life style while they had money I could not feel too sorry for them when they fell into dire poverty. The book ends with Fremont's death in 1890, and though Jessie lived till 1902 the book tells nothing about her life after Fremont's death. This is the third book by Stone I have read, the others being They Also Ran (read 15 Aug 1945) and his book on Clarence Darrow (read 17 Jul 1952) ( )

Loved this book. In 1980's i had never heard of Jessie Fremont, she became one of my favorite historical figures. As usual, Stone weaves a terrific story of love and adventure. ( )
