THE MAID OF BUTTERMERE, Melvyn Bragg

THE MAID OF BUTTERMERE, Melvyn Bragg

'A Detailed, eloquent and affecting panorama of truth and lies.. His new novel trusts him into the front rank'
David Hughes in The Mail on Sunday

This is the story of an impostor and bigamist, a self-styled Colonel Hope, who travels to the North, where eventually he marries "The Maid Buttermere", a young woman whose natural beauty inspired the dreams and confirmed the theories of various early nineteenth century writers... It is a fine story... This is historical fiction with a human face'
Peter Ackroyd in The Times

'Very much enjoyed; a fine subject treated with great energy and imagination, and a gusto that Hazlitt would have admired'
Richard Holmes, author of FOOTSTEPS

'A vivid and erudite historical tour de force-romantic fiction for the thinking reader'
Penelope Lively

'Bragg achieves the most difficult of feats, the telling of the changing perceptions and ideals of a radical age... He is also as powerful as ever in his description of nature'
Andrew Sinclair in The Sunday Times

'A skilled, ornate and convincing examination of a nineteenth-century scandal in Bragg's own Cumbria'
Thomas Keneally
