Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin

This is the story of Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) and the family of Alice Liddell.  Born into a Victorian family of privilege, free-spirited Alice catches the attention of family friend Dodgson and serves as the muse for both his photography and writing. Their bond, however, is questionable.  Benjamin does a wonderful job of capturing that era and the mystery that shrouded their relationship.
