The Macdonald sisters -- Alice, Georgiana, Agnes and Louisa -- started life among the ranks of the lower-middle classes, with little prospect of social advancement. But as wives and mothers they made a single family of the poet Rudyard Kipling, the Pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones, Edward Poynter, President of the Royal Academy, and the Prime Minister, Stanley Baldwin. In telling their remarkable story, Judith Flanders displays the fluidity of Victorian society, and explores the life of the family in the 19th century.

I recommend Circle of Sisters to all who are interested in women, in the 19th century, in history, in life.. a wonderful book.

Lots of interesting writing on Rudyard Kipling (Ruddy) and the Methodist Church.

Wonderful portrait of London life.
