Emily Fox Seton from the Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett. 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. During her trudging about this morning in the wet, Emily Fox-Seton had been very careful, and, in fact, was returning to Mortimer Street as unspotted as she had left it. She had been thinking a good deal about her dress—this particular faithful one which she had already worn through a twelvemonth. Skirts had made one of their appalling changes, and as she walked down Regent Street and Bond Street she had stopped at the windows of more than one shop bearing the sign "Ladies' Tailor and Habit-Maker," and had looked at the tautly attired, preternaturally slim models, her large, honest hazel eyes wearing an anxious expression.

Emily Fox Seton Frances Hodgson Burnett from the Author: Frances Burnett. Have you ever wondered what happened to Cinderella after she married the prince? Have you ever asked yourself if it was really "happy ever after?" Actually, in this Victorian melodrama, it's not. 35-years-old Emily Fox-Seton, quite penniless and a little lonely, saves herself from becoming an old maid by agreeing to a marriage proposal from the marquess of Walderhurst, thus becoming "one of the richest Marchionesses in England". She is na�ve, kind and good. She doesn't believe that people are really willing to hurt her, but why are all these strange accidents happening? This novel is divided into 2 parts. The first, "The Making Of A Marchioness" tells about the odd courtship of Emily and lord Walderhurst. The second part, "The Methods of Lady Walderhurst", most of the book, tells what happens after... This adult fairy tale, which, by mistakes, becomes a realistic novel, is a captivating book. I wish you all a wonderful reading.

Die Liebenden Von Palstrey Manor from the Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett. Eine mittellose junge Frau verzaubert das Herz eines reichen Lords. Die 34-jährige Emily Fox-Seton, aus vornehmer, aber längst verarmter Familie, schlägt sich in London durch, indem sie für adelige Herrschaften vertrauliche Aufträge und Besorgungen jeder Art ausführt: von einfachen Näharbeiten bis hin zum Finden eines neuen Butlers. Durch einen Schachzug ihrer Auftraggeberin Lady Maria Bayne lernt sie bei einem Sommerfest auf dem Lande deren Cousin Lord Walderhurst kennen, einen reichen Witwer, der sich prompt in Emily verliebt und um ihre Hand anhält. Mit der Hochzeit erfüllen sich Emilys kühnste Träume, zumal sie dem Lord einige Monate später den lang ersehnten Erben schenken wird. Doch Emilys Glück ruft jede Menge Neider auf den Plan, denn in Lord Walderhursts blasierter Verwandtschaft hat man ganz eigene Pläne mit dem erhofften Erbe ... Erstmals auf Deutsch, in liebevoller Ausstattung mit illustriertem Vorsatzpapier und Lesebändchen.
