More About Frances Hodgson Burnett
Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 – 29 October 1924) was an English-American playwright and author. She is best known for her children's stories, in particular Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885-6), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911).
Frances Eliza Hodgson was born in Cheetham, near Manchester, England. After her father died in 1852, the family eventually fell on straitened circumstances and in 1865 emigrated to the United States, settling near Knoxville, Tennessee. There, Frances began writing to help earn money for the family, publishing stories in magazines from the age of 19. In 1870 her mother died and in 1872 she married Swan Burnett, who became a medical doctor after which they lived in Paris for two years where their two sons were born before returning to the US to live in Washington D.C. There she began to write novels, the first of which (That Lass o' Lowries), was published to good reviews. Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and made her a popular writer of children's fiction, although her romantic adult novels written in the 1890s were also popular. She wrote and helped to produce stage versions of Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess.
Burnett enjoyed socializing and lived a lavish lifestyle. Beginning in the 1880s, she began to travel to England frequently and bought a home there in the 1890s where she wrote The Secret Garden. Her oldest son, Lionel, died of tuberculosis in 1892, which caused a relapse of the depression she struggled with for much of her life. She divorced Swan Burnett in 1898 and married Stephen Townsend in 1900, and divorced him in 1902. Towards the end of her life she settled in Long Island, where she died in 1924 and is buried in Roslyn Cemetery, on Long Island.
In 1936 a memorial sculpture by Bessie Potter Vonnoh was erected in her honour in Central Park's Conservatory Garden. The statue depicts her two famous Secret Garden characters, Mary and Dickon.
Frances Hodgson Burnett lived in Manchester. Frances Hodgson Burnett was born in 1849 and died in 1924.

For those who love a good ending and intriguing books Mar 3, 2006
The Lost Prince of Samavia tells a story of country that is in a terrible civil war, and where people are killing each other all for the sake of power. The poor citizens of Samavia can only hope that their beloved lost prince will come back and make every thing right as it used to be.
Marco Loristan and his father are two traveling, poor peasants. Marco's maturity and knowledge of the world makes him anything but the average peasant 12-year-old. As Marco learns about his father and the secret party that is searching for the lost prince and preparing for him, Marco is sent on a very important mission with his crippled friend "The Rat."
Marco and his best friend have to go to each member, undercover, and utter four, but remarkably important words.
The Lost Prince of Samavia is a 342-page paperback book, whose 31 chapters are filled to the brim with adventure and mystery.
As a 13-year-old and lover of action books, I enjoyed The Lost Prince of Samavia. I would recommend it to ages 9 to adults who love a good ending and intriguing books. -- Estee Wells, Christian Book Previews.com
