Mary Cholmondeley (8 June 1859 15 July 1925) was an English novelist.Mary Cholmondeley (usually pronounced ) was born at Hodnet near Market Drayton in Shropshire, the third of eight children of Rev Richard Hugh Cholmondeley (18271910) and his wife Emily Beaumont (18311893). Her great-uncle was the hymn-writing bishop Reginald Heber and her niece the writer Stella Benson. An uncle, Reginald Cholmondeley of Condover Hall was host to the American novelist Mark Twain on his visits to England.Her sister Hester, who died in 1892, wrote poetry and kept a journal, selections of both appearing in Mary s family memoir, Under One Roof (1918).After brief periods in Farnborough, Warwickshire and Leaton, Shropshire, the family returned to Hodnet when her father was appointed rector in 1874 in succession to his father. Much of the first 30 years of her life was taken up with helping her sickly mother run the household and her father with parish work, although she was debilitated with asthma. She entertained her brothers and sisters with stories from an early age.After her father retired in 1896, she moved with him and her sister Diana to Condover Hall, which they had inherited from Reginald. They sold it and moved to Albert Gate Mansions in Knightsbridge, London. After her father died, she lived with her sister Victoria, moving between Ufford, Suffolk, and 2 Leonard Place, Kensington. During the war she did clerical work in the Carlton House Terrace Hospital. The sisters moved in 1919 to 4 Argyll Road, Kensington, where Mary died on 15 July 1925. She never married.Mary Cholmondeley began writing with serious intent in her teens. She wrote in her journal in 1877, What a pleasure and interest it would be to me in life to write books. I must strike out a line of some kind, and if I do not marry (for at best that is hardly likely, as I possess neither beauty nor charms) I should want some definite occupation, besides the home duties. [5] She succeeded in publishing some stories in The Graphic and elsewhere. Her first novel was The Danvers Jewels (1887), a detective story that won her a small following. It appeared in the Temple Bar magazine published by Richard Bentley, after fellow novelist Rhoda Broughton had introduced to George Bentley. It was followed by Sir Charles Danvers (1889), Diana Tempest (1893) and A Devotee (1897).The satirical Red Pottage (1899) was a best-seller on both sides of the Atlantic and is reprinted occasionally.It satirises religious hypocrisy and the narrowness of country life, and was denounced from a London pulpit as immoral. It was equally sensational because it explored the issues of female sexuality and vocation, recurring topics in late-Victorian debates about the New Women. Despite the book s great success, however, the author received little money for it because she had sold the copyright.A silent film, Red Pottage was made in 1918. Diana Tempest was reissued in 2009 for the first time in a century.Later works such as Moth and Rust (1902) and Notwithstanding (1913) were less successful. The Lowest Rung (1908) and The Romance of his Life (1921) were collections of stories,the latter, her final book, dedicated to the essayist and critic Percy Lubbock.Lubbock later commemorated her in Mary Cholmondeley: A Sketch from Memory (1928).

About this Item: Dodo Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Mary Cholmondeley (1859-1925) was an English writer. Members of her family were involved in the literary world, notably her uncle Reginald Cholmondeley who was a friend of the American novelist, Mark Twain. Growing up, she liked to tell stories to her siblings and turned to writing fiction as an escape from the monotony of her daily routine. Her first book was published under the title, Her Evil Genius and shortly thereafter, her second work The Danvers Jewels (1886) earned her a small, but respectable following. In 1896 her family moved to the village of Condover temporarily before settling permanently in London, where she wrote the 1899 satirical novel, Red Pottage for which she is best remembered. She became friends with some of the well known literary figures of the time and in addition to more than a dozen novels, she wrote essays, articles and short stories. Her other works include Let Loose (1890), Diana Tempest (1893), Moth and Rust (1912) and Notwithstanding (1913). Seller Inventory # AAV9781409956426

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Original. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Red Pottage is a 1899 novel by English author Mary Cholmondeley.The subject of the novel-Red Pottage follows a period in the lives of two friends, Rachel West and Hester Gresley. Rachel is a wealthy heiress who falls in love with the weak-willed Hugh Scarlett after he has broken off an affair with Lady Newhaven (which he does not originally realize has been discovered by her husband). Hester, a novelist, lives with her judgmental brother, the pompous vicar of the fictional village of Warpington. Hester s brother disapproves of her writing and eventually burns the manuscript of a novel she has been writing. This leads Hester into a prolonged nervous illness. Scarlett who has not been entirely frank with Rachel about his past commits suicide when his dishonourable behaviour is revealed to her and she breaks off their engagement.History--Red Pottage caused a scandal when it was first published, in 1899, due to its themes of adultery, the emancipation of women and its satire of the clergy. It was adapted into a silent film in 1918 by Meyrick Milton starring C. Aubrey Smith, Mary Dibley and Gerald Ames.The novel has been republished several times since the 1960s.Mary Cholmondeley (8 June 1859 15 July 1925) was an English novelist.Mary Cholmondeley (usually pronounced was born at Hodnet near Market Drayton in Shropshire, the third of eight children of Rev Richard Hugh Cholmondeley (18271910) and his wife Emily Beaumont (18311893).

About this Item: Dodo Press, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Mary Cholmondeley (1859-1925) was an English writer. Members of her family were involved in the literary world, notably her uncle Reginald Cholmondeley who was a friend of the American novelist, Mark Twain. Growing up, she liked to tell stories to her siblings and turned to writing fiction as an escape from the monotony of her daily routine. Her first book was published under the title, Her Evil Genius and shortly thereafter, her second work The Danvers Jewels (1886) earned her a small, but respectable following. In 1896 her family moved to the village of Condover temporarily before settling permanently in London, where she wrote the 1899 satirical novel, Red Pottage for which she is best remembered. She became friends with some of the well known literary figures of the time and in addition to more than a dozen novels, she wrote essays, articles and short stories. Her other works include Let Loose (1890), Diana Tempest (1893), Moth and Rust (1912) and Notwithstanding (1913). Seller Inventory # AAV9781409902997

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Red Pottage is a 1899 novel by English author Mary Cholmondeley.The subject of the novel-Red Pottage follows a period in the lives of two friends, Rachel West and Hester Gresley. Rachel is a wealthy heiress who falls in love with the weak-willed Hugh Scarlett after he has broken off an affair with Lady Newhaven (which he does not originally realize has been discovered by her husband).
