Charles Williams is probably best known, to those who have heard of him, as a leading member (albeit for a short time) of the Oxford literary group, the "Inklings", whose chief figures were C. S.Lewis and J. R. R Tolkien. He was, however, a figure of enormous interest in his own right: a prolific author of plays, fantasy novels (strikingly different in kind from those of his friends), poetry, theology, biography and criticism.’

Charlotte M. Yonge (1823–1901) was a best-selling author in her time. Her work was read and enjoyed on the battlefields of the Crimea and in quiet English country towns, and by noted Victorians as diverse as Gladstone, Tennyson and Rossetti. Her appeal, then and now, is due to the liveliness of her portrayal of character. Her books are peopled with large Victorian families, every member distinctly drawn and presented with insight and humour.’
