Annotation "Drawing on years of investigation as well as Anne Lister's five-million-word secret journal, Learned by Heart is the long-buried love story of Eliza Raine, an orphaned heiress banished from India to England at age six, and Anne Lister, a brilliant, troublesome tomboy, who meet at the Manor School for young ladies in York in 1805, when they are both fourteen. Emotionally intense, psychologically compelling, and deeply researched, Learned by Heart is an extraordinary work of fiction by one of the world's greatest storytellers. In a shattering portrait of first love and loss, the tangled lives of Anne Lister and Eliza Raine form a tale for the ages."
