Overview

Charlotte M. Yonge (1823–1901) was a best-selling author in her time. Her work was read and enjoyed on the battlefields of the Crimea and in quiet English country towns, and by noted Victorians as diverse as Gladstone, Tennyson and Rossetti. Her appeal, then and now, is due to the liveliness of her portrayal of character. Her books are peopled with large Victorian families, every member distinctly drawn and presented with insight and humour.’
