This one is a classic riddle about two actual historial people.
George and Evelyn never met but they carried on writing until late in life. It has been said that Evelyn loved George, but she was too old for him. George married in 1880. He converted to Catholicism in 1930. During World War II, he served with the Royal Marines. Partly in recognition of this, Evelyn's subsequent writings analyzed the character of that war.
Evelyn died in 1966 in Somerset. Her first full-length novel had been published in 1859. She is buried in Highgate Cemetery. He died at age 62, after having published his autobiography in 1964. He lived one year longer than she did.
How could these statements all be true? First correct answer wins :)
