In the early morning of 7 September 1838, Grace Darling, the daughter of the keeper of the Longstone Light on the Farne Isles, rowed with her father to rescue survivors from the wrecked steamer Forfarshire. Her heroism caused a sensation. She was asked to appear at a London theatre and an Edinburgh circus. Queen Victoria headed the subscription list for a fund to support her, and Wordsworth was one of many poets who sang her praises. Immediately a national heroine, Britain's Joan of Arc, her fame spread throughout the world. Grace Darling: Victorian Heroine tells the extraordinary story of how Grace became a celebrity, her name and image used to sell books, soap and chocolates; and of how, since her tragic early death in 1842, her deed and her fame have been kept alive into the twenty-first century.

Mentioned in the Northumbrian (Main) October 2007

Title mention in East Riding News, 2007

"This well-researched book outlines the amazing story of how [Grace Darling] became a celebrity — her name enough to endorse soap and chocolates — and how the story of her deed and her fame have survived."

Reviewed in Berwick Advertiser, 2007.

Title mentioned in Unite.

"the most definitive work yet on the 'Grace Darling' industry. This work is absolutely full of detail and interesting ideas" Reviewed by Jo Stanley in Women's History Magazine, 2008

"A wide-ranging and highly engaging account ... [the book] offers a model of what good cultural history can be" - The Journal for Maritime Research

'This study is well done and offers numerous insights not just into the Grace Darling story but into the nature of heroism itself.' - Contemporary Review
