Being "The making of a marchioness" and "The methods of lady walderhurst". By Frances Hodgson Burnett. New york grosset & dunlap publishers. When Miss Fox-Seton descended from the twopenny bus as it drew up, she gathered her trim tailor-made skirt about her with neatness and decorum, being well used to getting in and out of twopenny buses and to making her way across muddy London streets. A woman whose tailor-made suit must last two or three years soon learns how to protect it from splashes, and how to aid it to retain the freshness of its folds.

Emily Fox-Seton Being "The Making of a Marchioness" and "The Methods of Lady Walderhurst". She was thirty-four and a well-set-up creature, with fine square shoulders and a long small waist and good hips. She was a big woman, but carried herself well, and having solved the problem of obtaining, through marvels of energy and management, one good dress a year, wore it so well, and changed her old ones so dexterously, that she always looked rather smartly dressed.

Emily Fox-Seton book. The first part, Being The Making of a Marchioness, was predictable, but the descriptions were interesting and the characters likable. The second part, The Methods of Lady Walderhurst, started out peacefully enough but then turned into a breathless rush to the finish.

Emily Fox-Seton is well-bred but penniless and earns enough to survive by helping out richer people of her own class. At 34, she knows she is unlikely to marry and despite her bleak-looking future, she manages to gain a lot of enjoyment from the simple pleasures of life, grateful for every sign of acceptance from her friends and acquaintances. In fact Emily Fox-Seton is a devoted Anglican who believes every word of the Bible. Burnett presents this as evidence of her simple-minded goodness. Having watched the dramatization on TV, and liking FHB's books I was quite surprised to see how much of the events had been omitted or changed for the TV production.

Frances Hodgson Burnett wrote for children and adults, publishing both plays and novels. She was born in Manchester, England, on November 24, 1849. Her father, who owned a furniture store, died when she was only four years old. Her mother struggled to keep the family business running while trying to raise five children. Finally, because of the failing Manchester economy, the family sold the store and immigrated to the United States. In 1865 they settled just outside of Knoxville, Tennessee

Frances Hodgson Burnett is best known for three children's books: The Secret Garden,A Little Princess and Little Lord Fauntleroy. But she wrote an adult novel and it's a fairly good one. If you are a fan of "Downton Abbey" you'll like the setting and drama in this novel, though it gets a bit melodramatic and it's not up to the standards of great English literature, not by a long shot. Burnett, who wrote some of the best children's literature ever, is no Jane Austen or Emily Bronte or Elizabeth Gaskell. Her characters are lightly sketched, her surroundings poorly described, and her plots are definitely melodrama. Still, there is something pleasurable about this novel and the first and third sections are very good. Only the middle is a bit overheated and silly.

Emily Fox-Seton is a young woman of good breeding, with wealthy relatives but no parents, and she is poor. This situation, the poor but well-bred young lady, is a common dilemma for Edwardian and Victorian novels. Such a woman has to find a wealthy but acceptable husband, or live in dire poverty taking in sewing, making hats or being a governess. You know the drill...

Emily Fox-Seton earns her bread by running errands and being a sort of employment agent and party organizer for wealthy, lazy and incompetent women of means, among them Lady Maria of Mallowes. There, being run ragged by Lady Maria, she meets Lord Walderhurst. The widowed marquess is seeking a second wife to bear an heir to the considerable Walderhurst fortune, but isn't really a very ardent fan of women and all that comes with it. Emily promotes the case of an equally poor but castle-raised Irish beauty with a bunch of sisters waiting in the wings to try their luck at a rich husband if she fails to save the family. However, the target of their designs, Lord Walderhurst, has other ideas.

The second book takes place at the Walderhurst estate. The heir apparent (until Walderhurst cracks one out on his own--entailed estate, ya'know) is a boorish cad named Osborn married to an Anglo-Indian beauty with an evil servant, who does all the bad things Hester can't bring herself to do. I think the novel was originally written to have Hester be the villain, but the author split off Hester's bad parts and made her more sympathetic and gave the ayah Ameerah the dirty work to do along with Osbourn. The entire section is dripping with melodrama and comes off like a third-rate penny dreadful. Sad, as the novel began so well.

Emily and Walderhurst face a huge challenge. You know someone is going to die but then there is a surprise turn. The end, however, peters out as if it was hastily shut off. T This is fluff, but it's the kind of fluff you might like if you like romantic novels and British period dramas.

Love the story especially after I watched the TV version, "Making of a Lady". But the type is so small it's hard too read. I am an avid reader and I have never received a good with type this small. It's the size of footnotes and most people would need a magnifying glass to read it! If you like Frances Hodgson Burnett buy the book from another publisher. My eyes are literally strained trying to get through this.

Love the Kindle book store. My first bad experience. Just finished reading The Making Of A Marchioness. Searched and found there was a sequel but had to purchase both to get The Methods of Lady Walderhurst. While his cover shows two books there is only one. I now have two copies of the first book. One with the first title and one with both titles and one book . Still a fan of Kindle book store.

Lady Emily is as sweet a heroine as one could root for. An enjoyable read for lovers of Victorian British Literature.

Just recently found out about this book! Loved it. Knew about "The Little Princess" "Secret Garden." This was a pleasant surprise.

good read- enjoyable.

I gave one star to the printed book, not to the content which I enjoyed. But the print quality is truly deficient and would had given no stars at all except the system did not allow me. It almost looked like a "home made" xerox copy. Also, in Chapter 6, pages 108 and 109 were missing (page 110 being printed on back of 107). In Chapter 18, pages 328 and 329 are repeated five times! Definitely, no quality control. Since then I downloaded the e-readers version in my nook and enjoyed reading the complete version.
A wonderfully insightful book and also dryly funny in many ways
One if the best books to read to get a real feel for the Victorians not the usual caricature
