Most people have heard of "Little Lord Fauntleroy" and "The Secret Garden", but many of them are unaware that the same woman wrote both books, 25 years apart, and was considered one of the leading writers in America. Exposed to the extremes of poverty and wealth, she survived two broken marriages and the death of a son. On the surface her life was extremely successful, but happiness eluded her. This book looks at her life and work.

From Publishers Weekly:

Lacking personal happiness despite her professional success, Burnett, best known for children's tales, was also an author of adult fiction and a friend of Henry James and President Garfield. PW called this "an absorbing view of an unusual and restless woman whose fiction had the world dancing to her tune." Illustrated.
