Author Margaret Worth took great pleasure from the excercise of telling this story. It is after all, her own to tell. Baby Edie Baldwin was Margaret's grandmother, and she learned the details of Edie's and her older sisters' lives from her own earliest days. Born and raised in the south of England, Margaret now makes her home in Canada. She has five children, ten grandchildren, and to date, four great grandchildren. She also has a somewhat overweight cat named Millie who serves as her writing muse. Margaret is currently at work on a sequel to Most Beloved Enemy that continues the story of young Edie's life, where this book left off.
