Nancy Horan's novels shed light on those often ignored by history: the wives of famous men. In her latest work, Horan recounts the improbable love affair between Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and his American wife, Fanny Osbourne. On their own, these two characters fascinate and entertain. Together, they demonstrate a deep and complicated love challenged by convention, geography and illness.
