Undiscovered until now, this is based on the true story of the life and loves of the leading woman poet, Letitia E. Landon, a contemporary of Shelley, Byron and Edward Bulwer Lytton, and decribes her moving in circles that brought intimate contact with and knowledge of the famous such as The Duke of Wellington, Lord Melbourne, Benjamin Disraeli and Daniel Maclise, the painter. This book uses a plethora of authenticated material only recently discovered and collated by the present- day author who is a direct lineal descendant of L.E.L, and who feels a very strong empathy toward her. Letitia E. Landon, known in her day as 'The Female Byron' was one of the most sought-after writers in the late Regency period. Amazingly, the hand of this poetess and Sappho of her time, seems now still to guide the writer as he describes the events of her dramatic, lustful and yet sadly short life. She had indeed such powers when alive since she even predicted details of her own death but cleverly disguised them within another's, for 'Disguise was her delight, and delight her greatest sorrow.'We are shown an endearing character, talented, beautiful and bewitching, who was tragically cut down at the height of her powers and in her youth whilst living in Africa, by a vicious and evil mulatto murderess, the mistress of her husband the 'Governor' of the Gold Coast who used mysterious native means to bring about her demise.
