Overview

Marketplace Product

‘There have been many women who have followed the beckoning Eastern star’ says Lesley Blanch. She writes about four such women in THE WILDER SHORES OF LOVE – Isabel Burton (who married the Arabist and explorer Richard), Jane Digby el-Mezrab (Lady Ellenborough, the society beauty who ended up living in the Syrian desert with a Bedouin chieftain), Aimee Dubucq de Rivery (a French convent girl captured by pirates and sent to the Sultan’s harem in Istanbul) and Isabelle Eberhardt (a Swiss linguist who felt most comfortable in boy’s clothes and lived among the Arabs in the Sahara).

They all escaped from the constraints of nineteenth century Europe and fled to the Middle East, where they found love, fulfillment and ‘glowing horizons of emotion and daring.’ And each of them, in their own way, used love as a means of individual expression, of liberation and fulfilment.
