Hello lovely Book Buds! I was lucky to receive an ARC of ‘The Illumination of Ursula Flight’ by Anna-Marie Crowhurst from NetGalley, and had many thoughts and feelings about it (as per usual…!) Read on for the full review, and hope you enjoy 🙂
‘The Illumination of Ursula Flight’ is a vividly told, humorous, honest tale of a young girl’s journey towards becoming a playwright, and the hardships she faces along the way. Stuck in 17th Century England, a time where all that was expected of a girl of her status was to become an obedient wife and doting mother, Ursula Flight meets an actress by chance and starts dreaming of a bigger, brighter future. A passion for writing is ignited and has her scribbling plays in the margins of her diary and yearning to see the stages of a London playhouse. But the course of true love never did run smooth, and Ursula has to face down pompous suitors, dashing rogues and tragic times before the stars align and she’s given the chance to live her life on her own terms.
