Rhoda Broughton

Rhoda Broughton (November 29, 1840 – June 5, 1920) was a novelist.

Rhoda Broughton was born in Denbigh in north Wales. From an educated and well-to-do family, as a young girl she developed a taste for literature, especially poetry, and was encouraged by her father to pursue a career in writing.

Her uncle, Sheridan le Fanu, was a successful author and he assisted in having her first two novels published in 1867. She would go on to a successful career, writing more than 25 novels plus a large number of short stories.

Her final years were spent at Headington Hill, near Oxford where she died on June 5, 1920.
