I heard a radio programme about Frances Burnett, author of The Secret Garden yesterday, and had no idea she had been such a prolific writer. I was captivated by The Secret Garden when I was a girl and wondered if anyone had read any of her adult fiction. If so, is it worth a go?

I read one of her adult books and just loved it. The Making of a Marchioness it was called.

Thanks, hackmum, I'll give it a whirl.

I love The Making of a Marchioness too! It should be more widely known (the book that is, not the fact I love it).

The Making of a Marchioness is brilliant. If you like that Persephone Books have heaps of similar literature.
