For anyone who loved the tales of ALICE IN WONDERLAND comes an inspired re-imagining of the 'real' Alice's tumultous life beyond the looking glass. I didn't want this story to disappear: I didn't want the day to end. I didn't want to grow up. 'Write it down', I said finally. 'Please, could you write it down?' ALICE I HAVE BEEN, the girl who inspired a classic at last tells her own extraordinary tale of life beyond the looking glass. As bold and imaginative as her storybook character, Alice shares the secrets of a blessed childhood in Oxford, where as the precocious daughter of the dean, she is pampered by everyone, including shy, stuttering academic, Charles Dodgson, also known as Lewis Carroll. But in one fateful moment, when she begs her grown-up friend to write down one of his wild and fanciful stories of talking rabbits, mad hatters and a fearless little girl, her life is changed forever. From the unconventional young woman who catches the eyes of a prince, wife and mother of three soldiers to grieving widow, she is, ever and always, thought of as that Alice. Looking back at the childhood mystery that took a lifetime to solve and her tumultuous love life, Alice at last discovers - and embraces - the woman she became when she outgrew Wonderland. 'Colours in the spaces to reveal a vibrant and passionate Alice ...a finely wrought portrait that seamlessly blends fact and fiction. this is book club gold.' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
