Judith Paris, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Set partly in Revolutionary Paris, and partly in romantic Cumbria, Judith Paris is the story of the two very different men who love Walpole's most delightful heroine.

Daughter of Frances Herries and Mirabell Starr, Judith was described on publication as 'the most delightful of Walpole's heroines'.

As impetuous, impulsive and passionate as her father, she is torn between her ambitions and her love of the wild beauty of the Lakes.

Set partly in Paris during the French Revolution, and partly in the unforgettably romantic Cumbrian hamlet of Watendlath, it is the story of the two very different men who love her, and is both comic and moving, by turns tragic and triumphant. The second of the Herries Chronicles, it sold 20,000 copies in its first week of publication in 1931.

Review by

I did so enjoy this second book in The Herris Chronicles, it is jammed packed with beautiful descriptions of the Cumbrian countryside, which brings a picture to your eye as you read. The Characters are all so strong and wonderfully rich in life and eccentricities!Judith is a fantastic heroine with so much personality and adventure in her soul.I loved it loved it loved it, a wonderful read, you just have to give it a go!!

Also in the Herries Chronicles series
