Rebecca Burton is an excellent editor; she is knowledgeable, patient and has a consistent eye for detail. I consider myself an accurate writer, but she found not only things I had missed, but also things I was not aware of. It was reassuring to have someone of her skill working on my manuscripts to produce two books I am proud of (Empire Girls: The Colonial Heroine Comes of Age and Changing the Victorian Subject). She was also unfailingly pleasant to work with. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
