Abstract:

Daughters of a poor Methodist minister, the Macdonald sisters started life precariously stationed in the lower-middle class. Denied the advantage of a traditional education, or the expectation of social advancement, as wives and mothers they made a single family of a famous painter (Georgiana's husband, pre-Raphaelite Edward Burne-Jones), a president of the royal Academy (Agnes' husband, painter-critic Edward Pointer), a prime minister (Louisa's son Stanley Baldwin) and a poet (Alice's son Rudyard Kipling). They lived at an exceptional moment in British history, and their journey from provincial obscurity to metropolitan and imperial grandeur symbolized the energy and vitality of 19th-century Britain.--From publisher description.
