9781906462123: The Making of a Marchioness (Persephone Classics) (Persephone Book)

Part I, the original Marchioness, is in the Cinderella (and Miss Pettigrew) tradition, while Part II, called The Methods of Lady Walderhurst, is an absorbing melodrama; most novels end 'and they lived happily ever after' but this one develops into a realistic commentary on late-Victorian marriage. 'Delightful... A sparky sense of humour combined with lively social commentary make this a joy to read' wrote the Bookseller. Kate Saunders told Open Book listeners that she was up until two in the morning finishing this 'wildly romantic tale whose 'hero and heroine are totally unromantic' (Daily Telegraph); the Guardian referred to 'a touch of Edith Wharton's stern unsentimentality'; the Spectator wrote about the novel's 'singular charm'; and the Daily Mail stressed the 'sharp observations in this charming tale.' By the author of ""The Secret Garden""

Part one, the original Marchioness, is in the Cinderella tradition, while part two, called The Methods of Lady Walderhurst, is an absorbing melodrama - a realistic commentary on late-Victorian marriage. Unjustly out of print for years, this neglected classic deserves its place alongside "Pride and Prejudice" and "Jane Eyre". Bookseller Inventory # B9781906462123
