Sitter in 28 portraits
During her lifetime, Frankau was one of the most popular writers in Britain and America. She came from a family of novelists and journalists and by the age of twenty-one had published three novels and a book of short stories, many of which are mystery thrillers. The Willow Cabin (1949) is Frankau's most acclaimed work, and The Times Literary Supplement described the heroine, an actress and mistress of an older man, as 'an illustration of the type most favoured by contemporary women novelists'.
