Susan Horner, a British writer on Italian subjects, spent eight months in Florence in 1861 and 1862.

For Susan, the city is a treasure trove of art, architecture and history, an ideal environment for her intellectual and artistic pursuits. She enjoys the lively social scene and delights in the company of like-minded liberals with a passion for Italian unification. As a background for personal joys and adversities, Florence makes a lasting impression on this upper middle-class woman.
