“Miss Jewesbury wrote two or three novels of the rebellious-sentimental kind, her heroines contending against such contrarieties of fate as that women should have to endure the pains and troubles of maternity, She is chiefly known by her long association with Thomas Carlyle and his wife.” — Mrs. Oliphant (1892)
