Works By
Harriett Mozley's writings, published over about a decade of the mid-nineteenth century, are deeply involved with the sectarian struggles within the Church of England to which her brother, later Cardinal Newman, largely contributed. She issued three collections of tales for children and one adult novel, besides much writing for children's periodicals which is still unidentified. She also left interesting letters.
