The books by Frances Hodgson Burnett?
The Dawn of a To-morrow and A Lady of Quailty by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
Can anyone tell me a brief thing of what either of these books are about, please? I have to read a classic for my book report and was considering these because i have liked other books by this author, but do not know what they are about.
Any help is great, thanks.

A Lady of Quality was "a successful novel that was also converted into a play with the help of the author's husband, Frances Hodgson Burnett's A Lady of Quality (1896) presents the story of the English gentry at the end of the seventeenth century. Taking historical events as the backdrop for her work, Burnett creates a protagonist who is determined to have her own way."
Here's something about The Dawn of a Tomorrow:
There's not much about them on the internet, but you can read most of Burnett's books free online as they're out of copyright!
