A Great Romantic Novel: In The Infinite Woman, there is more than thesuperb storytelling of Gypsy Sixpence, the romantic scene of Yankee Pasha, and the high imagination of Castle in the Swamp.
In Lucia Riley who became Lola Montero in this one heroine, Edison Marshall has created every woman with her natural gifts of beauty, passion, and power. In this one woman’s life he tells a rich and violent story that speaks of men and women everywhere. With the Victorian world as a background, his brilliantly colored scenes move from britain to India, to France, acrossthe continent to Austria, returning to a final breath-taking climax on the moors of England. As a starting point for his story, Mr. Marshll has taken the life of the great dancer and courtesan, Lola Montez. His vigor, imagination, and deep insight have departed from and transformed the facts. The Infinite Woman has overtones of philosophy and deep understanding of the dark and the golden in the souls of woman and the men who mold them and are molded by them.
