Helen Berry is Reader in Early Modern History at Newcastle University. She is the author of numerous articles on the history of eighteenth-century Britain, and is the co-editor (with Elizabeth Foyster) of The Family in Early Modern England (2007). This is her second book.


`Helen Berry has crafted the tantalizing tale of a baroque enigma. A consummate achievement, as light, bright, and sparkling as a glass of prosecco.' Amanda Vickery, author of Behind Closed Doors: At Home in Georgian England `[Helen Berry] deploy[s] her considerable skills as a historian and writer to re-create with panache the world in which Dorothea and Tenducci both flourished and floundered.' The Sunday Times `Compelling' The Independent on Sunday `Fascinating' We Love This Book `Spirited biography' Sunday Times {Culture} `A well-researched story of a very unique arrangement' The Resident `Berry is fascinating' Daily Express `Berry was right to attempt this book, whose content is unique and effect unsettling and thought-provoking.' Sunday Telegraph {Seven} `Bravo' Classic FM Magazine
