About the Author
Donna Fletcher Crow has always loved the Victorians. “I love their energy, their confidence, their optimism. Victorians are often criticized as being repressed and are blamed for the injustices in their society; but I see them as people who sincerely worked for good. There were many difficulties in Victorian society, but when they identified a problem they set about with enormous vigor to correct it. I hope I have portrayed those achievements in some of the novels I have set in that period.” Crow is a lifelong Anglophile, a former English teacher, and the author of 50 books, mostly novels of British history, including the award-winning Arthurian epic Glastonbury, The Novel of Christian England. She currently authors three mystery series.
