Encompassing European travel, Civil War profiteering, suicide, a stormy courtship, seances, psychedelic mushrooms, the death of a child, and an enduring love story, Alice in Jamesland is a portrait of a nineteenth-century upper-middle-class marriage, told often through Alice's own letters and made all the more dynamic because of her role in the James family."
