About this title:


Most people have heard of "Little Lord Fauntleroy" and "The Secret Garden", but many of them are unaware that the same woman wrote both books, 25 years apart, and was considered one of the leading writers in America. Exposed to the extremes of poverty and wealth, she survived two broken marriages and the death of a son. On the surface her life was extremely successful, but happiness eluded her. This book looks at her life and work.

Product Description: A moving biography of Burnett, author of The Secret Garden and A Little Princess and one of the more famous literary figures of the Gilded Age.
