Lady's Maid Reviews


"From the viewpoint of Elizabeth Wilson... lady's maid, Margaret Forster retells the love story of Robert and Elizabeth Browning...Enthralling" * Daily Telegraph *
"Compulsively readable... at each climax of the story, from the Browning's runaway romance to her own equally compromised and complicated marriage, the lady's maid speaks directly and at the last most movingly" * Guardian *
"Passion, melodrama, pathos - and a happy ending. What more can you ask for?" * Daily Mail *
"Movingly told... Wilson's pleasures, losses and disappointments in love are complicated and excellently understated, imagined as a contrast to the grand passions she has to serve" * Times Literary Supplement *
"Accomplished, beautifully written... packed with discreet domestic detail" * Financial Times *
