Wild Romance is at once a biography of an ordinary woman and a history of Victorian-era Britain, while at all times a meticulously researched work of narrative nonfiction. The relevance of the work directly mirrors today's society in which common court cases become news, which in turn become mass entertainment Shortlisted for the Longman-History Today Award 2010
