Read full description of the books Vallende Engelen:

De dag na de dood van koningin Victoria ontmoeten twee totaal verschillende families elkaar tijdens een bezoek aan hun familiegraven op een Londens kerkhof. De familie Waterhouse is conservatief Victoriaans, de familie Coleman hoopt juist dat de samenleving met de komst van koning Edward VII zal veranderen. Tot hun grote afschuw raken hun beide dochters bevriend en hun vriendschap met de zoon van de grafdelver maakt het er niet beter op.
De meisjes groeien op in een nieuwe, turbulente tijd. Paarden worden vervangen door elektriciteit en het benauwde Victoriaanse tijdperk gaat over in een gouden Edwardiaanse zomer. Maar de aantrekkelijke mevrouw Coleman raakt toch gefrustreerd door haar nog steeds beperkte vrijheid. Ze raakt in de ban van de suffragettes, wat desastreuze gevolgen heeft voor beiede families.

Read information about the author

Ebook Vallende Engelen read Online! Born:
19 October 1962 in Washington, DC. Youngest of 3 children. Father was a photographer for The Washington Post.

Childhood:
Nerdy. Spent a lot of time lying on my bed reading. Favorite authors back then: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Madeleine L’Engle, Zilpha Keatley Snyder, Joan Aiken, Susan Cooper, Lloyd Alexander. Book I would have taken to a desert island: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.

Education:
BA in English, Oberlin College, Ohio, 1984. No one was surprised that I went there; I was made for such a progressive, liberal place.

MA in creative writing, University of East Anglia, Norwich, England, 1994. There’s a lot of debate about whether or not you can be taught to write. Why doesn’t anyone ask that of professional singers, painters, dancers? That year forced me to write all the time and take it seriously.

Geography:
Moved to London after graduating from Oberlin in 1984. I had studied for a semester in London and thought it was a great place, so came over for fun, expecting to go back to the US after 6 months to get serious. I’m still in London, and still not entirely serious. Even have dual citizenship – though I keep the American accent intact.

Family:
1 English husband + 1 English son + 1 tortoiseshell cat.

Career:
Before writing, was a reference book editor, working on encyclopedias about writers. (Yup, still nerdy.) Learned how to research and how to make sentences better. Eventually I wanted to fix my own sentences rather than others’, so I quit and did the MA.

Writing:
Talked a lot about becoming a writer as a kid, but actual pen to paper contact was minimal. Started writing short stories in my 20s, then began first novel, The Virgin Blue, during the MA year. With Girl With a Pearl Earring (written in 1998), I became a full-time writer, and have since juggled it with motherhood
