A good biography, interestingly interspersed with excerpts from fiction written by this prolific family. Mary was engaged at 12 and married young. She was dominated by her husband who was later the Archbishop of Canterbury. His children included E.F. Benson, of "Mapp and Lucia" fame. The book provides good insight into the late Victorian, early Edwardian periods.
