Who was Alice Pleasance Liddell? Tired of being known only as Alice in Wonderland, eighty-year-old Alice mines her way to the heart of this question, and speaks of the implacable mother who raised her, of the prince who loved her, of the sons she sent off to war, and of the love affair that shattered her life. Alice reflects on the halcyon days at Oxford: days of great privilege and even greater tragedy; of being courted by royalty, and of finding life beyond the rabbit hole in a tumultuous but astonishing journey. Few works of literature are as universally beloved as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Now, in this spellbinding historical novel, we meet the young girl whose bright spirit sent her on an unforgettable trip down the rabbit hole -- and the grown woman whose story is no less enthralling
