She was educated at a girls' boarding school called Laurel Bank, in Melrose. As is made clear by the prefaces of her books from time to time, she travelled extensively after 1904. H. E. Marshall is famous for the 1905 children's history of England, Our Island Story: A History of England for Boys and Girls, illustrated by A. S. Forrest. In the USA the book was entitled An Island Story. The book was a bestseller, was printed in numerous editions, and for fifty years was the standard and much-loved book by which children learned the history of England. The book is still to be found in schools and homes.Hide synopsis
