About this product
- DescriptionAlthough best kwn for Little Lord Fauntleroy and The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett was considered one of the leading writers in America on the strength of her adult vels, which made her name in the 1870s and 1880s. Ripe for rediscovery, Bello is proud to bring a select group of these classic vels back into print. A complex tale of courtship, marriage, women's rights and American politics, Through One Administration is one of Frances Hodgson Burnett's most fascinating vels. At its centre is Bertha Amory, a society wife in nineteenth century Washington D.C. Married to a lawyer, her safe world is disrupted when a former acquaintance returns to the city. Philip Tredennis first met Bertha years earlier, when they were both young. Returning to find her married to ather man, yet obviously t in love with him, Tredennis can only watch and try to do what he can for Bertha and the situation in which she finds herself. Frances Hodgson Burnett lived in Washington D.C. for many years and brilliantly recreates the world she knew so well, where even the most seemingly superficial of characters may show unexpected depth when observed in the right way.
- Author BiographyFrances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was born in Manchester and spent her early years there with her family. Her father died in 1852, and eventually, in 1865, Frances emigrated to the United States with her mother and siblings, settling with family in Knoxville, Tennessee. Frances began to be published at the age of 19, submitting short stories to magazines and using the proceeds to help support the family. In 1872, she married Swan Burnett, a doctor, with whom she had two sons while living in Paris. Her first novel, That Lass o'Lowrie's, was published in 1877, while the Burnetts were living in Washington D. C. Following a separation from her husband, Burnett lived on both sides of the Atlantic, eventually marrying for a second time, however she never truly recovered from the death of her first son, Lionel. Best known during her lifetime for Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886), her books for children, including The Secret Garden and The Little Princess, have endured as classics, but Burnett also wrote many other novels for adults, which were hugely popular and favourably compared to authors such as George Eliot.
