Judith Paris

Judith Paris

Author(s): Hugh Walpole

Location(s): Paris, The Lake District

Genre(s): Fiction, Historical

Era(s): 1720-1930



This is the second in the Herries Chronicles.
Set partly in Revolutionary Paris, and partly in romantic Cumbria, Judith Paris is the story of the two very different men who love Walpole’s most delightful heroine. Daughter of Frances Herries and Mirabell Starr, Judith was described on publication as ‘the most delightful of Walpole’s heroines’. As impetuous, impulsive and passionate as her father, she is torn between her ambitions and her love of the wild beauty of the Lakes. Set partly in Paris during the French Revolution, and partly in the unforgettably romantic Cumbrian hamlet of Watendlath, it is the story of the two very different men who love her, and is both comic and moving, by turns tragic and triumphant
