About the Author

Born in Marylebone, London and raised in La Celle-Saint-Cloud, France, Mrs Belloc Lowndes was the only daughter of French barrister Louis Belloc and English feminist Bessie Parkes. Her brother was Hilaire Belloc. Her paternal grandfather was the French painter Jean-Hilaire Belloc and her maternal great-grandfather was Joseph Priestley. In 1896 she married Frederic Sawrey Lowndes.

Her first novel, The Heart of Penelope, was published in 1904. From then on novels, reminiscences and plays came from her quill at the rate of one per year until 1946. In the novel, I, too, Have Lived in Arcadia, published in 1942, Mrs. Belloc Lowndes told the story of her mother's life, compiled largely from old family letters and her own memories of her early life in France.

She died November 14, 1947 at the home of her elder daughter, Countess Iddesleigh (wife of the third Earl[1]) in Eversley Cross, Hampshire. She was interred in France, in La Celle-Saint-Cloud near Versailles, where she spent her youth.
