The Life Of Grace Darling (Illustrated) – by John Harper and John Pagan (Original Art By Moira Pagan)
Published 2018, Hardback Edition
In 1838 Grace Darling achieved worldwide acclaim for an act of outstanding courage. With her father she saved the lives of nine people on rocks off the Northumberland Coast. Over night she was declared a heroine. Awards and gifts were showered on her. She became deeply troubled by the fame and attention, and died at the age of 26.
This book, beautifully illustrated by Moira Pagan, a descendant of the Darling family, tells the true story of the first media celebrity, her childhood, the dramatic sea rescue and her rejection of fame.
