Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Lennox Sisters--great-granddaughters of a king, daughters of a cabinet minister, and wives of politicians and peers--lived lives of real public significance, but the private texture of their family-centered world mattered to them and they shared their experiences with each other in countless letters. From this hitherto unknown archive, Stella Tillyard has constructed a group biography of privileged eighteenth-century women who, she shows, have much to tell us about our own time.

About the Author

Stella Tillyard was graduated from Oxford University. The author of The Impact of Modernism, a work that was awarded the Nicolaus Pevsner Memorial Prize, she has taught at U.C.L.A. and Harvard. She lives in London and Florence with her husband and two children.
