Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This is a love story. But it is also a detective story. And best of all, it is a true story, told here for the the first time. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was a romantic, a writer of detective tales, and a teller of the truth. His own story and the stories he told are becoming better and better known. But what has remained unknown is the story of the most important person in his life: his wife Frances.
Nancy Carpentier Brown has done incredible detective work to uncover the mystery of Frances, tracking a figure who managed to leave very few traces of herself.
It is quite likely that as more is discovered about Frances, more biographies will be written of her, and they will be even more complete. But they will all come back to this one.
-          Dale Ahlquist, from the Foreword

About the Author

Nancy Carpentier Brown is the wife of artist Michael Brown, and mother of two amazing young women. She became interested in the life of Frances Chesterton as she read biographies of G.K. Chesterton, and recognized in Frances a kindred spirit. Brown wanted to know more about the woman who was Mrs. G.K. Chesterton, and found that there was a dearth of information about her life. And so she took it upon herself to remedy that, and this book was born.

Brown is the author of numerous Chestertonian titles, including: The Father Brown Reader: Stories from Chesterton, The Father Brown Reader II: More Stories from Chesterton, Chesterton’s The Blue Cross: Study Edition and A Study Guide for G. K. Chesterton’s St. Francis of Assisi; The Mystery of Harry Potter: A Catholic Family Guide; How Far Is It To Bethlehem: The Plays and Poetry of Frances Chesterton; The Children’s Crusade; Faith & Fable: A Masque, The Three Kings: A Play for Christmas.

Brown is the winner of the Kilby Research Grant for her work on Frances A. Chesterton. She is a regular contributor to Gilbert, and has had articles, chapters, and poems published in many other magazines and books
