Michael Brown

Author Michael Brownabout this book: William Wordsworth's untold love story.

During the Summer of 1798, twenty-eight-year-old William Wordsworth and his sister, Dorothy, two years his junior, were living in Alfoxden House, a short walk from the Bristol Channel, an arm of the Celtic Sea in the English West Country. King George III was on the English throne and his country was involved in a protracted war with France.

The end of the 18th century marked the dawn of the Romantic Era in poetry. William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge led the way with their book, Lyrical Ballads. One of the poems included in the tome was, She Dwelt Among the Untrodden Ways, written by Wordsworth. It was one of five Lucy poems he wrote, three of which are attributed to the inspiration of a young woman who may have lived in rural Somerset. Lucy has been the subject of debate in literary circles ever since the poems were first published. Wordsworth never revealed her true identity.

Who was Lucy? Where did she come from? Did she ever exist? No one will ever know.

This is William and Lucy's story…

For reading fans of Jane Austen, Diana Gabaldon and Nicholas Sparks
