Dorothy Wordsworth traded in a conventional life to share in her brother’s world of poetry.

The tale that unfolds through her brief, lyrical journal entries reveals a strange, intangible love between brother and sister, culminating in Dorothy’s dramatic collapse on the day of William’s wedding. Frances Wilson uncovers the rich emotional life of a woman who suffered the jealousies of a discarded mistress, and eventually insanity.
