About the Author

Katie Waldegrave, formerly Head of History at Cranford Community College in West London, now runs First Story - a charity she founded with author William Fiennes in 2008. The Poets' Daughters is her first book.


Meticulously researched ... a fascinating snapshot of one of the most interesting periods in British intellectual and artistic history ...Waldegrave ... brings the story of these two women's lives brilliantly alive. * Sunday Times *
[An] important and moving book . . . quite simply fascinating ... [Dora and Sara] emerge from these pages as intensely knowable; never has the cost of being a daughter of Romanticism been shown with more sympathy and imagination. * Literary Review *
A gripping narrative ... This insightful and compassionate book ... is a powerful addition to the recent literature that has enlarged our understanding of women whose lives - until now - have remained obscured by those dominant male writers of their time. * New Statesman *
To find a fresh story to tell about an already formidably chronicled group of historical figures is an accomplishment in itself, but for weaving such a fascinating familial case history out of the material, Waldegrave deserves considerable praise. * Observer *
[A] riveting family saga ...Katie Waldegrave is non-judgemental ... She has negotiated the mountains of material and the emotional swamps with skill and clarity. * The Spectator *
