fascinating biography of Fanny Burney, who was given the title 'Mother of English Fiction' by Virgina Woolf.

Had Queen Victoria not come the throne, life would be far better. The Georgians were an amazing bunch of people, we have far more in common with them than we think.

Fanny Burney was free to write, travel marry whomever she wished. Her life was action packed (though perhaps not from choice) and she had a mastectomy in 1811, without anesthetic which was a success.She traveled across Belgium, France and Prussia alone just after the Franco-Prussian war ceased, to find her French husband using a French passport which showed her English name...Brave lady!

Together with some lesser known works she wrote 3 major novels in her lifetime. Was ripped off with the first, made a little more with the 2nd and was more astute by the third. She lived at Windsor Castle as maid to Queen Charlotte. Was friends with George III. Then lived hand to mouth with her 'aristocratic' French Husband who was in exile in England following the French Revolution.

As a young woman she was well read and well acquainted although her background was modest middle class. The daughter of music teacher. Her intelligence and way of seeing the world stood her in good stead. Had she born in the middle years of Victoria's reign she would have perhaps faded into oblivion.

I enjoyed this. It was a library loan but I'd consider buying a copy.
