The author : 
Harriet Parr (1828-1900) was a British author of the Victorian era, who wrote under the pseudonym Holme Lee. 
The daughter of a commercial traveler, Parr was born in the English city of York in 1828. She never married and worked initially as a governess before finding success as a writer with her first book, Maude Talbot, in 1854. From then until 1883, Parr produced approximately one novel a year, all published by the London firm Smith, Elder & Co., under the pen name Holme Lee. Charles Dickens, having enjoyed one of Parr’s early books, purchased three stories from her for the Christmas numbers of his weekly magazines. One of these included a hymn that would later be republished in various Protestant hymnals in Britain and the United States. Parr also wrote several volumes of fairy tales for children, plus some works of non-fiction, most of the latter under her real name. She lived for many years at Shanklin on the Isle of Wight, where she died in 1900.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
