Inspired by the twenty-three "tales," Matthew Dennison takes a selection of quotations from Potter's stories and uses them to explore her multifaceted life and character: repressed Victorian daughter; thwarted lover; artistic genius; formidable country woman. This narrative charts her transformation from a young girl with a love of animals and fairy tales into a bestselling author and canny businesswoman -- so deeply unusual for the Victorian era in which she grew up.
