Frances Hodgson Burnett published The Making of a Marchioness in 1901. She had written Little Lord Fauntleroy 15 years before and would write The Secret Garden in 10 years' time; it is these two books for which she is best known. Yet Marchioness was one of Nancy Mitford's favourite books, was considered 'the best novel Mrs Hodgson Burnett wrote' by Marghanita Laski, and is taught on a university course in America together with novels such as Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, and Daisy Miller.

    " I read this while I was sick in bed for a week. It was very charming. Similar to her other books (Little Princess, Little Lord Fauntleroy (sp?)), the main character was pure and innocent and good and it was very uplifting. "

    " I didn't think I'd read this before, but as I read I realised that the story was familiar although it must be years and years since I read it and I probably enjoyed it more as a teenager. It's being adapted for television by ITV, although I suspect they may need to pad it out considerably. The book is short, sweet (perhaps too sweet?) but very readable. "

    " 3.5 stars, would make a good BBC Sunday night drama. "

    " Delightfully implausible romance with a heroine so good you want to slap her, but FHB pulls it off. I enjoyed it immensely. "
