Sheila Kaye-Smith (1887-1956), Writer

Sitter in 12 portraits
Kaye-Smith's most popular novels Green Apple Harvest (1920) and Joanna Godden (1921) portray the farming communities, landscapes and dialect of her native county, Sussex - later parodied by Stella Gibbons in the comic novel Cold Comfort Farm (1932). Kaye-Smith combined writing thirty-one novels with teaching the running of a farm with her husband. Her most enduring works are two studies of Jane Austen written in collaboration with the author G.B. Stern.
