Eliza Carthy is the daughter of Martin Carthy OBE and Norma Waterson. The clan has often been rightly described as folk's royal family. Perhaps it was inevitable that Eliza would follow the family trade and become a folk musician. At 35 years of age it seems apt to chronicle the first part of an eventful life. In addition to extensive interviews with Eliza herself, the book contains interviews with her parents and other family members and also many of the people Eliza has worked with. Also included are an extensive collection of photographs.

Tim Carroll, Folkwords "Crucially, the book manages to do justice to the woman herself: earthy, forthright and eminently entertaining." fRoots "Wayward Daughter is a great read, and should inspire further interest in this singular, inspiring musician. Highly recommended." Mark Dishman, Folk Witness
