Eden, Emily: the Semi-Attached Couple, v.1, 10 Feb 2008.

Done in response to a request.

This seems to be a society novel.

From http://www.victoriamemorial-cal.org/ex_eden06.html

Emily Eden (1797-1869) was the 7th daughter of the 14 children of William Eden, 1st Baron of Auckland. Her eldest sibling was George Eden, better known to students of Indian History as the 1st Earl of Auckland, Governor-General of India (1836-1842). She was born into a blue-blooded family of achievers and in early life was inspired by her mother, who was an independent-minded woman, who travelled extensively with her highly placed husband and took an active interest in public affairs along with him.
Emily grew up to be a versatile and gifted woman and became a successful novelist, a painter and a writer of a book entitled "Up the Country" (pub. 1866) that described through her letters, her journey with her brother and his retinue, from Kolkata to Shimla. Besides "Up the Country" she wrote two novels "The Semi-Detached House" (1859) and "The Semi-Attached Couple" (1860). All of her books were received well by the reading public.

Thanks for posting this book as it is one of my favorites. Emily Eden was a friend of Oscar Wilde and was involved in helping him get to France after he was released from prison.

As a greedy reader, I would want all of Angela Thirkell and E. M. Delafield.

I'm glad that you like the book, and will be posting another by the same author later today.

I think that you must be mistaken about the Wilde connection, though. Oscar Wilde's trial was in 1895. Emily Eden died in 1869. Perhaps you might be thinking of Ada Leverson, who certainly did help Wilde a lot and was a minor writer. (Wilde nicknamed her 'The Sphinx.)

I've had a look and Angela Thirkell (1890-1961) is still in copyright everywhere.
E M Delafield (1890 -1943) is still in copyright in both the life plus 70 years countries and the US.

You're right, I was thinking of Ada Leverson. I read both authors at about the same time.

Thanks for checking on Thirkell and Delafield. I thought they might still be in copyright but one can always dream.
