The Broad Highway is a novel published in 1910 by English author Jeffery Farnol. Much of the novel is set in Sissinghurst, a small village South East England in Kent. It was a best-seller, and the number one selling fiction book in the United States in 1911. Jeffery Farnol (10 February 1878 – 9 August 1952) was a British writer from 1907 until his death, known for writing more than 40 romance novels, some formulaic and set in the Georgian Era or English Regency period, and swashbucklers. He, with Georgette Heyer, founded the Regency romantic genre. John Jeffery Farnol was born in Aston, Birmingham, England, UK, the son of Kate Jeffery and Henry John Farnol, a factory-employed brass-founder. He had two brothers and a sister. He was brought up in London and Kent. He attended the Westminster School of Art after losing his job in a Birmingham metal-working firm. He published his first romance novel My Lady Caprice in 1907. The success of his early novels led Farnol to become a professional writer. He produced around 40 novels and volumes of stories, and some non-fiction and children's books. His last book was completed by his second wife Phyllis.
