Thanks for this post. I think Burnett is often overlooked.

The Gerzina bio is worth reading. Burnett drew heavily on her bicontinental life and relationships in much of her work, including in my favorite Hodgson novel, The Shuttle. It is a potboiler, but an insightful one -- her musings on the power balance between men and women, and the relationship between America and England, are fascinating and still relevant.


Along with "The Secret Garden" and "A Little Princess", I recommend "The Lost Prince".
