Summary
BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY: HISTORICAL, POLITICAL & MILITARY. This charming fact-based story, set in the southwest of England during the nineteenth century, has been written by Matilda White's great-great-great-grandson, a New Zealand resident who stayed in Devon for a year to thoroughly research his ancestor's fascinating life. The year is 1827, and an uneducated but enterprising young Devon farm girl starts selling her strawberries and home-made clotted cream at the local market. She is befriended by an upper-class young lady, Hannah Hill, who changes her life forever. Matilda's achievements - substantial for one so humbly born - as well as her sacrifices, are described in loving detail in a tale filled with scandal and social expectations, happiness and tragedy. It's a book you'll find engrossing from start to finish!
