Description
Minnie Sidgwick was just 12 years old when her cousin, 23-year old Edward Benson, proposed to her in 1853. Edward went on to become Archbishop of Canterbury while little Minnie—now Mary Benson—entered a social world that included such luminaries of the day as Tennyson, Browning, and Queen Victoria herself. After the archbishop died, Mary raised a family of eccentric but gifted children. Drawing on the diaries and novels of the Bensons themselves, as well as the writings of such contemporaries as George Eliot and Charles Dickens, Rodney Bolt creates a rich and intimate family history of Victorian and Edwardian England and a detailed portrait of Mary, whom Prime Minister William Gladstone called "the cleverest woman in Europe."
