Paperback / softback

Description

'Before biography was fashionable, Antonia Fraser made the past popular' Guardian'As a pure storyteller, Antonia Fraser has few equals' Sunday TimesCAROLINE NORTON, a nineteenth-century heroine who wanted justice for women. Poet, pamphleteer and artist's muse, Caroline Norton dazzled 19-century society with her vivacity and intelligence.

In 1836 Caroline underwent a dramatic trial when her jealous husband sued the Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne, for adultery.

Provisions which are now taken for granted - such as the right of a mother to have access to her children - owe much to Caroline, who was determined to secure justice for women at all levels of society.

Award-winning historian Antonia Fraser brilliantly portrays a woman who refused to be curbed by the personal and political constraints of her time.
