More About Victoria Lincoln

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! VICTORIA LINCOLN was born in 1904 in Fall River, Massachusetts, where she lived until she graduated from the B.M.C. Durfee public high school in 1922. She majored in English at Radcliffe College, married the scion of a well-to-do Southern family, divorced, and later married Victor Lowe, a professor of philosophy whose primary interest was in the work of Alfred North Whitehead. They settled in Baltimore, Maryland. She had one child from her first marriage and two from her second. Miss Lincoln wrote many essays and short stories for women's magazines and several novels including February Hill (an early success in 1934) and Charles (1962) about Charles Dickens. After many years of wanting to write about Lizzie Borden, and despite advice that the market for books on Lizzie was saturated, she decided that her unique perspective on the murders deserved a hearing. A PRIVATE DISGRACE received an Edgar as the best non-fiction crime book of 1967 from the Mystery Writers of America. In 1981 Miss Lincoln died in her home in Baltimore. She was 76.

Victoria Lincoln was born in 1904.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A masterpiece of imaginative biography.  Sep 2, 1997
A novelist most of her career, the late Victoria Lincoln spent years writing this carefully researched and intuitive portrait of the greatest of Catholic Saints (my own opinion)and the founder of the discalced Carmelite order of nuns. Teresa was poorly understood in her own time, and canonized for the wrong reasons, which is why she continues to be misunderstood by most people today. In a recent book on leadership, Garry Wills referred to her in a dismissive manner that revealed his own ignorance of her life, an ignorance promoted by the very church that claims to revere her. Working from Teresa's writings, including her letters (and reading skillfully between the lines) Lincoln convinces the reader that here was a human being for all times, a woman of very human impulses and emotions who transcended her limitations to explore the very nature of faith, asking questions of herself that would terrify most of today's public "Christians". She also had to face the constant threat of the Inquisition, who on more than one occasion came close to condemning a woman who would someday become an icon of the Spanish Church, along with her friend John of the Cross. The book is so painstaking in its recreation of Teresa's life that it can be difficult to follow at times. Lincoln not only has to tell a story but to make a case for her interpretation of it, but her humor and empathy, the quality of her research, and the painful beauty of her prose more than reward the reader for persistance. Some Catholics may be shocked at the revelations in the book (Teresa may have been less than chaste as a novice, and was falsely suspected of sexual misconduct later on), but this is no tawdry expose but an honest look at a woman who in spite of her conviction of her own unworthiness, strove for an ever closer communion with God, without ever losing sight of her humanity. You should meet her; read this book.
