Joanna Trollope

JT is a highly popular novelist who began in the late twentieth century with historical romances and moved on to books which explore the changing conditions of contemporary life and especially family life: the kind of family which has been shaped by successive marriages or relationships and which carries the scars of break-up and loss. Nineteen of these, she says, have been best-sellers.
