Feminist writer Virginia Woolf is now a household name, but she fought hard for that distinction. Narrator Nicola Barber explains the development of this creative rebel in a lush, feminine tone. Her vocal persona appropriately creates the aura of a well-to-do, well-educated, young woman. Barber takes us gently through Woolf's privileged childhood in a blended family and then presents the various historical roadblocks to women's formal education. She narrates with feeling the contradictions and frustrations of Woolf's journey to becoming a writer. Fans of her work will sink into this listening experience as a gentle reintroduction to the writer's life. Barber makes the scattered details of the entire family engaging for the listener.
