Short biography
"BARBARA GOOLDEN... published several dozen novels in all, and although the earliest few seem to have been seriously reviewed (the Spectator referred to The Conquering Star [1929] as one of "her series of studies of post-War society" and concluded that it was "a story rich, like its predecessors, in varied portraiture and natural dialogue"), later works look pretty clearly like light romances or family stories—and some of those seem rather intriguing... though of course they could turn out to have the charm of an Elizabeth Cadell or the... mundane banality of a Maysie Greig."
