Angel by Elizabeth Taylor

Angelica Deverill uses money from the vast sales of her popular novels to discard her humble beginnings, to buy a husband, and live in Paradise House. Angel is astoundingly arrogant but is so humanely rendered that the book is moving as well as funny, and when Angel dies we hate to see her go.
Elizabeth Taylor was born in Reading.
