About the Author:

Marian Veevers lives in the Lake District, just five miles from Grasmere, and works for The Wordsworth Trust. As Anna Dean she is the author of the Dido Kent series which is set in Bath and Hampshire in the era of Jane and Dorothy.

Review:

“An intelligent and sometimes searing portrait of two pivotal women in English literature. Veevers’s writing flows effortlessly and sustains interest by moving back and forth between the two women.”
- Publishers Weekly

“In this entertaining biography, written in an intimate, personal style, the author employs a chronological narrative to explore the different ways in which these two women responded to the obstacles presented by Georgian society. A well-researched, wonderfully told story of two women of their times.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“An admirably researched, sensitive study of authors Jane Austen and Dorothy Wordsworth. Readers familiar with Austen will easily fall in love with Wordsworth as a character in this storied version of the women’s lives, and scholars will discover new ways of looking at both women’s relationships with their families. Striking a balance between specialized knowledge and general interest, this will be a great fit for Austen fans who want to delve deeper into her life or expand their views on women’s roles during the Regency period.”
- Library Journal (starred)

“Beautifully written. Characters one cares about immediately and a mystery which becomes more urgent with every page.”
- Ann Perry (Praise for BELLFIELD HALL)

“Captured the tricky business of presenting a clever and resourceful woman, hedged in by a tight-laced society, who turns those limitations to her own benefit. Decorative and thoughtful, Bellfield Hall is a worthy addition to the historical crime tradition.”
- Laurie R. King, author of TOUCHSTONE
