A new book received with faint edgewear.; 'The Macdonald sisters -- Alice, Georgiana, Agnes and Louisa -- were four daughters of a poor Methodist minister, with little prospect of social advancement. But as wives and mothers they made a single family of the poet Rudyard Kipling, the Pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones, Edward Poynter, President of the Royal Academy, and the Prime Minister, Stanley Baldwin. In telling their remarkable story, Judith Flanders displays the fluidity of Victorian society, and explores the life of the family in the 19th century..' Georgiana Burne-Jones was also the grandmother of author Angela Thirkell. There are a few mentions of her and her family in the book.; "The Macdonald sisters were four remarkable women from a humble background, who rose to eminence and helped weave the web of power and influence in Victorian England. Judith Flanders re-creates their inner and outer worlds with wit, sympathy, and insight."- Hilary Mantel author of the "Wolf Hall" trilogy. Image is one of two copies available.
