The author, Amanda Foreman, admits to being in love with her subject, but I don't think it diminishes the book at all. It is, mostly, an objective look at a woman and her life in all it's glory and sorrows. I came away feeling sorry for Georgianna, even though she created most of the disasters of her life herself.
