Before the Brontë sisters picked up their pens, or Jane Austen's heroines Elizabeth and Jane Bennet became household names, the literary world was celebrating a different pair of sisters: Jane and Anna Maria Porter. They published 26 books and achieved global fame, although their family friend, Sir Walter Scott, was mistakenly given the credit for "making" them. Detailing the remarkable rise of these glamorous sisters, Devoney Looser also explains their fall from the pinnacle of celebrity to eventual obscurity, and stresses the importance of their pioneering efforts.
