A Sailor Hat In The House Of The Lord: The Autobiography Of A Rebellious Victorian

la Chard, Therese

£20.00

Therese la Chard was a Victorian cageling par excellence, the motherless child of a wealthy Anglo-German family living on the rural fringe of London, a home in which ‘system’ was the only ogre, involving obsessions with health and music which became a tyranny and caused her to revolt. Midway through youth came a sudden decline into biting poverty, with a lovely stepmother and a clamorous brood.
