Dorothy Wordsworth was more than William’s sister. She was a writer, friend, collaborator, aunt, pioneering walker, local philanthropist, inspiring gardener, and – perhaps most famously – author of the Grasmere journal. She was an extraordinary, yet relatable, woman: a writer, sister, and friend of the nineteenth century and for the twenty-first.
