Ambitious, daring and uncompromising Lady Hester Stanhope was never cut out for a conventional life. After the death of her uncle, the Prime Minister William Pitt the younger, Lady Hester set sail with her lover for the Mediterranean and Con stantinople. Lady Hester was the first Western woman to cross the Syrian desert, where she was hailed by the Bedouin as the Star of the Morning.
