'The Making of a Marchioness by Frances Hodgson Burnett is not only an enthralling story but also it portrays in fascinating detail the stark reality of the Edwardian marriage-market.  The heroine, Emily Fox-Seton, virtuous, pretty and very hard-up, falls almost by chance into marriage with her marquess.  Innocent and unperceptive, she remains totally unaware of the ruthless plotting going on around her, of the murderous ambitions of those determined to secure for themselves the inestimable rewards of status and wealth.'
