In 1778, to the fury of their aristocratic families, Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby eloped and fled to North Wales, to Llangollen.
This charming book is taken from the journal that Eleanor Butler kept of their life together. During their lifetime, its contents aroused much speculation, but no one was permitted to see it and its true nature was protected from prying eyes. In fact, the journal is a delightful record of the ladies' devotion to one another and of the times in which they lived. Elizabeth Mavor's selection includes extracts from the journals themselves, and from the Ladies' Receipt and Account Books, together with a number of unpublished letters, all giving an extraordinarily vivid picture of village life in the late eighteenth century and of the remarkable friendship of the Ladies of Llangollen.
Publisged in hardback under the title, Life with the Ladies of Llangollen.
