Dora Wordsworth and Sara Coleridge were lifelong friends. They were also the daughters of poetic geniuses and best friends William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who ushered in Romanticism at the turn of the 19th century. Living with their fathers' extraordinary fame brought Sara and Dora great privilege, but at a cost; in different ways, each father almost destroyed his daughter. Anorexia, drug addiction, and depression were part of the legacy of fame, but so too were great friendship and love. Historian Katie Waldegrave tells how these young women dedicated themselves to advancing their fathers' writings and reputation, and ultimately shaped their own legacies.
