“Elizabeth von Arnim keeps you in a state of powerless anxiety to the point where you almost want to write the final chapter yourself.” Dove Grey Reader

'She has a wild sense of comedy and a vision continually thwarted though it was of potential happiness' Penelope Mortimer

“Vera by Elizabeth von Arnim is a tale of death, love, and marriage (in that order)”

VERA is the book many believe Daphne du Maurier based ‘Rebecca’ on. It is perhaps the greatest book written by the best-selling author Elizabeth von Arnim. Inspired by her disastrous marriage to Earl Russell, it is a uniquely funny and unusual picture of love and marriage. On the day Lucy Entwhistle loses her father, she is found by the controlling Everard Wemsyss . . .

Elizabeth von Arnim was called ‘the smartest woman of her century’ by H. G. Wells, and her books have been referred to on ‘Downtown Abbey’. She was voted the most neglected female author in a poll by Radio 4 listeners.
