One Year Blogversary Event: Love and Capital by Mary Gabriel Review and Giveaway (3 Winners!) - CLOSED!

I have just had the pleasure of reading a wonderful book entitled Love and Capital by Mary Gabriel. Normally I don't read historical biographies, but this one intrigued me by reading other reviews and praise about this book. This is the story of Karl and Jenny Marx. The author researched their lives by many letters found written to and by the family. She translated them all into English and wrote this tale of love, deceit, and struggle. I found it very interesting and couldn't put it down. Karl Marx's works redefined our world after his death, and it was very interesting to learn of his life and family!

Book Description:

Brilliantly researched and wonderfully written, LOVE AND CAPITAL is a heartbreaking and dramatic saga of the family side of the man whose works would redefine the world after his death. Drawing upon years of research, acclaimed biographer Mary Gabriel brings to light the story of Karl and Jenny Marx's marriage. We follow them as they roam Europe, on the run from governments amidst an age of revolution and a secret network of would-be revolutionaries, and see Karl not only as an intellectual, but as a protective father and loving husband, a revolutionary, a jokester, a man of tremendous passions, both political and personal. In LOVE AND CAPITAL, Mary Gabriel has given us a vivid, resplendent, and truly human portrait of the Marxes-their desires, heartbreak and devotion to each other's ideals.
