Potter "was a prolific letter writer, and through her own words to friends, working colleagues and children we can discover the observant, energetic, affectionate and humorous personality she kept hidden from her public. From a collection of over 1400 letters Judy Taylor has assembled a representative selection which documents every stage of Beatrix Potter's life... Her life, from 1866 to 1943, covers a period of immense social change."
