Lucy Cary was a seventeenth-century nun (like those of her sisters to whom her work has been variously ascribed). It was presumably as part of her religious life, more than for family or literary reasons, that she wrote the life of her mother, Elizabeth Cary, Lady Falkland, which is a most unusual hagiography.
