This is the story of the other woman in Nelson's life - the woman who waited patiently year after year for him to return from the wars only to be cruelly rejected in favour of his mistress.
Unlike the depiction of Fanny as cold and unresponsive by Nelson's biographers, this enthralling biography of his wife takes a close look at the hundred or so letters she wrote to him that reveal a woman of strong character; caring, warmhearted and sympathetic, with a keen sense of humour and a deep and abiding love for her husband.
