This intricate but personal study by Rose Hogan looks at the life of Mrs Craik, including her loves, her losses, her triumphs and her failures, as well as her wonderful and varied works of fiction. She analyses the key themes of the majority of her literature, with particular reference to Tewkesbury-based John Halifax, Gentleman, and offers an accessible and thoroughly enjoyable foray into the life of this inspiring woman who, until now, has been unfairly overlooked.
