  The Making of a Marchioness by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Isabel Raphael, Gretchen Gerzina Published by Persephone Books on January 1st Genres: Fiction, Classics Pages: Goodreads ISBN: This post contains affiliate links which you can use to purchase the book.   Overall, I liked The Making of a Marchioness for the way that it took a simple romantic plot and turned it on its head. This is not a flowery fairy-tale romance like other period dramas, James and Emily do not fall in love instantly, but marry for other reasons like companionship and security, and instead grow to love each other.

Frances Hodgson Burnett is best known for her children’s literature, namely The Secret Garden and The Little Making of a Marchioness, however, is a Victorian fairytale for the mature , Kailey Rhone guides up through the book and reviews the period drama that is based on the text.
