Dorothy Wordsworth, born in 1771, shares an inseparable bond with her brother, William. After a period of separation following their mother's passing in 1778, they reunite in the Lake District in 1794, embarking on two idyllic months of exploration near Keswick before making Grasmere their home in 1799.

Dorothy's journals are windows to a world of vivid observations, capturing both the beauty of nature and the trials of local life. Her brother, William, credited her with shaping his poetry, saying she gifted him eyes and ears to perceive the profound beauty of the world around him.

Join us on a journey through the Wordsworths' life, from their quaint Dove Cottage dwelling to their later years at Rydal Mount. Don't miss this immersive audiobook – a delightful voyage through history and the heart of the Lake District.
