A Natural Sort of Woman Frances Nugent Author
Shop on Barnes & Noble


At five foot eleven in her stockings, and certainly not slender, Harriet Murray is painfully aware that she is unattractive to men. By choosing to work in her father’s office, she is looked on by her mother as a failure, eccentric and unwomanly, and by the age of 24 she is considered a confirmed spinster. But a visit to her sister in Brittany in the summer of 1870, just before France declares war on Prussia, propels her into quite a different life of love and war during the siege of Paris, and in the aftermath she battles to follow a profession that only a handful of women have ever tackled.
