In the village of Wreay, just above the Lake District, stands perhaps the most singular church in England, built in the early Victorian era by a most unusual landowner—the subject of this delightful book from the biographer of Elizabeth Gaskell and William Hogarth and author of The Lunar Men. Born into an old Cumbrian family and heiress to an industrial fortune, Sarah Losh was intelligent, highly educated, strong-willed, and passionate in her pursuits. She eschewed marriage to live with her sister and indulge in her own creative impulses, and her St. Mary's Church is a masterpiece of architectural synthesis and symbolic carvings in stone that anticipated the arts and crafts movement by 50 years.
