Read full description of the books:
Completely enjoyable. Emily is kind, unsuspecting, unselfish woman that on principle one should hate but I couldn't. I just liked her even when she saw the best in people (and they were trying to kill her). She's just so nice and real. This is two stories in one - the first half is a romance and the second half is a horror show (husband's heir is not fond of the new Marchioness). It shouldn't work, those two jarring stories, but it does. I really liked this edition, it had a intro and afterward that added to the book. I'd recommended this to someone looking for a book written in the early 1900's. This one was written 1901 which is about ten years before the Secret Garden was written.

Read information about the authorFrances Eliza Hodgson was the daughter of ironmonger Edwin Hodgson, who died three years after her birth, and his wife Eliza Boond. She was educated at The Select Seminary for Young Ladies and Gentleman until the age of fifteen, at which point the family ironmongery, then being run by her mother, failed, and the family emigrated to Knoxville, Tennessee. Here Hodgson began to write, in order to supplement the family income, assuming full responsibility for the family upon the death of her mother, in 1870. In 1872 she married Dr. Swan Burnett, with whom she had two sons, Lionel and Vivian. The marriage was dissolved in 1898. In 1900 Burnett married actor Stephen Townsend until 1902 when they got divorced. Following her great success as a novelist, playwright, and children's author, Burnett maintained homes in both England and America, traveling back and forth quite frequently. She died in her Long Island, New York home, in 1924.
Primarily remembered today for her trio of classic children's novels - Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911) - Burnett was also a popular adult novelist, in her own day, publishing romantic stories such as The Making of a Marchioness (1901) for older readers.
