About this title


A moving biography of Burnett, author of The Secret Garden and A Little Princess and one of the more famous literary figures of the Gilded Age.

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.
