This review is from: The Poets' Daughters: Dora Wordsworth and Sara Coleridge (Hardcover)
An enlightening biography of 2 women who both had to manage the joys and disappointments of having a famous father. I learned a lot about their, remarkably little known, stories. It was very well researched and the author pulls together various sources into a compelling narrative. There were a couple of mistakes with dates in the otherwise very useful family trees. My only criticism is that after the excellent chapters on their childhoods I rather lost sight of the relationship between Dora and Sara.
