Christina Rossetti (1830-94) was an English poet. Sister to the great Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti and niece of Byron’s physician John Polidori (author ofThe Vampyre), Christina wrote poetry from the age of seven. The publication of her most famous collection, Goblin Market and Other Poems (1862), made her a household name and secured her status alongside Elizabeth Barrett Browning as one of the most influential female voices in nineteenth-century poetry.
As her family connections might suggest, Christina Rossetti’s work displays not only a strong religious sentiment but also a profound love of fairytale and folklore, laced with a dash of the macabre.

Our audiobooks download as zipped files (due to their size and for your convenience). Once unzipped you will find all of the mp3 files for your audiobook named, and in correct file order. Due to the way Apple has designed iOS, iPhones and iPads don’t recognise these zip files automatically (unlike Android devices). So, if you buy one of our titles via your iPhone or iPad, there are two ways to find and listen to your files:
 Download for FREE iZip for iOS – then download the audiobook using the link provided either on the webpage or the email we sent you. After the file has downloaded click on the Open With option and choose iZip. The app will open and ask if you want it to unzip all the files, say yes. A minute or so later you will have a list of mp3 files in order, and you just need to tap on the one you want to play and it will start playing in the Audioplayer. You can easily play, pause, jump forward or back.
 Slightly easier – download the zip file to your PC or MAC, unzip it to a folder you know the location of (such as your Music or Documents folder), then use iTunes to transfer the files in the same way you would a music album.
We hope you enjoy your audiobook and come back for more soon!
