  • Altogether a model biography - human sympathy tempered with honesty and spiced with real intelligence

    Lorna Sage, Observer
  • A startlingly good biography

    The Times
  • Convincing throughout ... Margaret Forster's interpretation of her subject is so complete and so persuasive that it leaves nothing for the reader to do except admire and enjoy

    Independent on Sunday
  • Forster's acute and sensitive book succeeds on many levels ... Its most important achievement is to disprove the highbrow assumption that bestsellers are shallow ... and do not ... engage the depths of the psyche

    John Carey, Sunday Times
  • Margaret Forster can do no wrong ... The story is as gripping as Rebecca, as full of surprises as My Cousin Rachel ... affectionate, honest, unsentimental and perceptive
